Thanks for stopping by! I’m primarily on leave from Duke May 2019-May 2021 serving as Chief Data Officer for North Carolina’s Department of Health and Human Services. Almost all research described on this site is on hold during this time.
Research Areas of Interest
- Informatics to enable precision medicine, especially in mental health
- Translational Bioinformatics
- Ethical, legal, & social issues (ELSI) related to precision medicine and data sharing.
My group is interested in the development and application of informatics methods to enable precision medicine, particularly in the area of mental health. Current projects include EHR data mining in mental health disorders, machine learning in schizophrenia, natural language processing of clinical text, and integrative data analysis for biomarker discovery.
