My research is in biomedical informatics, natural language processing, and data mining. I develop techniques that aim to support clinicians, patients, and health researchers in their information workflow by automatically extracting and making accessible information from unstructured, large clinical datasets (e.g., the electronic patient record) and patient platforms (e.g., online health communities). My research relies on two types of methods: (1) I design novel computational approaches that infer models of health phenomena and account for the specific biases of large health data; (2) I translate the learned models into actionable knowledge and robust systems within the healthcare ecosystem (e.g., a patient record summarization system for clinicians at the point of care).

Besides doing research, I spend time with Anna, I listen to music on thisismyjam, and I make lists (see below).
