I am now an Assistant Professor of Health Informatics in Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. CMU/Pittsburgh folks: I am looking for PhD students!
I received my MD-PhD in Medicine and Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
My research interests lie at the interface of biomedical informatics and machine learning. Specifically, the widespread adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) in health care settings provides a rich source of medical data, which until recently has not been used to characterize and identify disease patterns.
My primary research goal is to predict future disease susceptibility, for many diseases, using EHR clinical details such as diagnoses, family history and genetic markers. We focus on individualizing treatment effects as they may change in non-linear ways, given we have additional situational and environmental information.
