My backround is in informatics, data science, and machine learning.

I am interested in:

  1. Developing algorithms to predict clinical events from physiological data that are robust to noise, sparsity, and nonstationarity.
  2. Enhancing model interpretability to identify novel pathophysiological mechanisms and improve clinical adoption.
  3. Applying data science approaches to drug discovery and clinical trials management.

I did my PhD in the Clifford Lab. We extracted features from heart rate and accelerometer data using signal processing, estimated illness from these features with machine learning, and improved performance by analyzing information during specific times, over several time scales, and between signals.

Application areas included sepsis, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, mental illness, and neurodegenerative disease.

We patented an algorithm to monitor PTSD via heart rate variability. It was licensed to a company and is being commercialized.
