Research Activities: 

My research interests are focused broadly on the applications of ‘big data’ in health care and specifically on the methodology, development, and application of diagnostic and therapeutic predictive models for epilepsy. In order to accomplish these goals, my aim is to apply advanced computational modeling (machine learning, artificial neural networks, and deep learning) to large electronic health records collected during the course of routine clinical care and linked administrative data that are of a sufficient volume and variety to permit the discovery of new insights that cannot be appreciated from smaller datasets. Biological indices in the form of raw electroencephalographic and imaging data, and whole exome sequencing, will be used to refine these models to generate clinically robust, intuitive predictive algorithms that can be used to enhance patient care through precision medicine.
