I am a computational demographer, data scientist, and clinical informaticist. I architect high-performance data-driven apps that enable intelligent visual analytics systems for decision making in healthcare and population health management.
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine at HMS, a research staff with the MGH Laboratory of Computer Science, and an affiliated faculty with the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies. My most recent work has focused on architecting visual analytics application to explore data quality in Electronic Health Records data and characterize patients, using Statistical Learning techniques and Data Science methodologies.
I have a PhD in Urban Planning and a PhD track in Statistics from University of Washington. During my 2 years of postdoctoral fellowship at LCS, I was also an Informatics training fellow of the National Library of Medicine at HMS Department of Biomedical Informatics. Prior to joining LCS, I had completed another 2-year postdoctoral fellowship with the University of Washington’s Institute of Translational Health Sciences and Department of Biomedical Informatics.
