I am a research staff member in the Center for Computational Health and manager of the Health Analytics Research Group at IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center.
My current research focus is on the development and application of data mining and machine learning techniques to analyze, model and derive actionable insights from real world health data. My prior research areas include information retrieval, speech recognition, probabilistic modeling, topic modeling, and statistical language modeling.
Before IBM Research, I was a senior software engineer and architect in IBM Software Group for a number of products including IBM Patient Care and Insights (IPCI), eDiscovery Analyzer (eDA), IBM Content Analyzer (ICA), Omnifind Yahoo! Edition (OYE), IBM Classification Module (ICM), and Omnifind Discovery Edition (ODE).
Prior to IBM, I was a principal software engineer at iPhrase Technologies and held research positions at the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science, BBN Technologies, and MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
I have Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
