As an Assistant Professor at Columbia's Medical Center, I work on prediction and analysis of electronic health record data using existing and novel probabilistic methods.
I am interested in developing methods that combine disparate sources of data, such as clinical notes, laboratory values, medications, procedures, and billing codes to predict things such as chronic kidney disease progression or analyze data to identify side-effects that were previously unknown.
As an extention of my work in analyzing electronic health record data, I am also interested in developing new sources of data to improve our ability to predict and analyze.
I am interested in developing methods that leverage data from mass spectrometry and light spectroscopy to better characterize an individual's current state of health and predict their future state of health.
This course is targeted for biomedical scientists looking for working knowledge of programming and statistics. This is a fast-paced, hands-on course covering the following topics: programming basics in Python, probabilities, elements of linear algebra, elements of calculus, and elements of data analytics. Students are expected to learn lecture material outside of the classroom and focus on labs during class. All labs revolve around real-world biomedical and health datasets.
This course is a reading course targeted towards biomedical scientists interested in developing in-depth knowledge of Bayesian statistics and the graphical modeling framework. This is a fast-paced course covering the fundamentals of probabilistic graphical modeling theory, exponential families, model design, latent variable models, the expectation maximization algorithm, and various methods for inference including Markov chain Monte Carlo methods and variational methods. This course will involve several programming assignments and a final project.
