Alexander L. Hayes is a Health Informatics Ph.D. Student working with Professor Kay Connelly and the Proactive Health Informatics Department on the Precision Health Initiative. His interests are in statistical relational artificial intelligence (STARAI), systems, open source development—and their applications toward solving real-world Health Informatics problems. He holds a B.S. Computer Science from Indiana University, and continues to collaborate with Professor Sriraam Natarajan and his colleagues from the StARLinG Lab at the University of Texas at Dallas.

He is currently working in the nuMoM2b (new-mom-2-be) data set, where one of the aims is to model the development of gestational diabetes. Additional information about this project is included in the nuMoM2b preprocessing documentation.
