MAJOR RESEARCH INTERESTS:

I am interested in the design, development, and implementation of clinical descision support systems (CDSSs) in the electronic health record (EHR) in order increase the efficiency of clinical workflow. My interest specifically focuses on the use of data modeling, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in these systems. Currently, my research is aimed at decreasing alert load in the EHR by suppressing unnecessary alerts.
