I'm a clinical informatics researcher interested in clinical decision support, problem lists and data mining on large clinical datasets. I'm currently leading two NIH-funded research projects: one focused on using CDS to improve clinical problem lists and the other focused on using statistical anomaly detection methods to make CDS more reliable and effective. Previously, I've done work on service-oriented CDS, how CDS can reduce malpractice risk and how novel visualization and summarization methods can make EHRs easier to use. In addition to my research, I teach Harvard's introductory biomedical informatics courses, and also teach first-year medical students.

Our hospital (BWH) and health system (Partners HealthCare) both use Epic, and we have a pretty good data warehouse with lots of clinical and EHR-related data.
