I am an assistant professor of Health Informatics in Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. I received an MD-PhD in 2016 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying machine learning for health care and caring for patients in hospital and clinic settings. Within CMU I have an affiliate appointment in the Department of Machine Learning at the School of Computer Science. At the University of Pittsburgh I have an adjunct appointment in the Department of Biomedical Informatics.
I am passionate about improving health care and health research through advances in computer science. My research focuses on the development of machine learning algorithms to advance the use of electronic health records for characterization of disease, prediction of health outcomes, and intervention to improve lives.
I teach Statistics for IT Managers and am developing a course on the application of machine learning to health care. I am actively looking for PhD Students!
