We welcome students from all disciplines with an interest in exploring innovative research in health systems and technology applications.
Research interest: Health informatics, translational research in healthcare and medicine, health system integration, semantic interoperability, healthcare decision making and decision support, health data analytics, medical imaging informatics and patient safety.
Research interest: Information management with a particular focus on data quality, security and performance management issues found in high-availability, mission-critical systems. Such systems are commonly used in banking, as well as in healthcare which leads to my interest in the broad field of health informatics.
