Health Information Privacy Laboratory

Research (Areas: Data Mining, Privacy, Biomedical Informatics)

I have broad research interests in data mining, management, and trustworthy computing. The majority of my research focuses on the construction and evaluation of data privacy models for personal information that is collected, stored, and shared in large complex systems. My goal is to design technology that is accountable to organizational, social, and legal regulations. I am particularly interested in 1) automated learning methods for the analysis of health information, 2) anomaly detection strategies for electronic medical records and 3) sharing clinical and genetic information for research purposes without violating privacy expectations.
