I am a Health Informatics Ph.D. Student with the Proactive Health Informatics (ProHealth) department within the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering (SICE) at Indiana University, Bloomington. Working with my advisor Professor Kay Connelly and other members of the ProHealth group, I am involved in the Precision Health Initiative. This grand challenge seeks to cure one form of cancer, cure at least one childhood disease, find a preventative solution to one chronic illness, or find a preventative solution to a neurodegenerative disease by 2020.

I continue to work closely with the StARLinG Lab and the Center for Machine Learning at the University of Texas at Dallas, collaborating with Professors Sriraam Natarajan and Gautam Kunapuli.

My interests are in Statistical Relational Artificial Intelligence (STARAI), Systems, and Open Source Development—and their application to solving real-world problems within Health Informatics. I believe that open development, open data, and explainable decision-making systems are great starting points for building trust in artificial intelligence, and more broadly for systems that people can use in their everyday lives.
