Research Fellow, Department of Health Sciences Research, Mayo Clinic, USA.


My current work is centered on developing and integrating innovative machine learning approaches in clinical informatics. As a research fellow at Mayo Clinic, I have been working on an R01 NLM-funded project, which aims to accurately retrieve ad hoc cohorts from clinical data repository. In addition to the R01 project, I also leverage statistical models and information extraction techniques to help physicians systematically review healthcare disparities from the literature and analyze the Electronic Health Records. I have published over 10 research articles since I joined Mayo Clinic in 2015. Prior to joining Mayo Clinic, my research emphasized on theoretical analysis of indexing and ranking methods in information retrieval.
