I am an informatics researcher and an Assistant Professor at the iSchool at Illinois. I study how evidence gets used and how data gets reused. My research interests include systematic reviewing and evidence representation. For instance, I have studied evidence pipelines for drug-drug interactions.
Monday 8:30-10AM I chair the session S18: Papers - Making Semantic Representation Meaningful.
(Date/time TBA, but likely Sunday night or Monday afternoon) I will co-host the Knowledge Representation and Semantics
I joined the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as Assistant Professor in fall 2016. Previously I was an NIDCR/NLM-funded postdoctoral trainee in biomedical informatics at Pitt and a research participation postdoc at the Lister Hill center of NLM. At Pitt, I was in the Department of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Medicine and associated with the Center for Informatics in Oral Health Translational Research at Pitt's School of Dental Medicine.
On Wednesday morning I will present a poster in the NIDCR Trainee Research Presentations [Convention Center, Petree Hall C]: “Tracking evidentiary claims in a systematic review: a proposed case study of oral pain relief”. View my poster on slideshare.
On Saturday, you'll find me at Toward a Diagnosis Driven Profession 2016 [JW Marriott Gold Ballroom], a workshop on dental terminologies. I am part of the organizing team. Terminologies and ontologies are part of my core research and I would be delighted to talk more about them.
