A consortium of leading informatics laboratories at Harvard and MIT, supported by a grant from the National Library of Medicine.
I have been a BIRT fellow since April 2009. Before coming to Boston, I was a post-doc at the RODS laboratory, University of Pittsburgh, where I conducted research for two biosurveillance projects. In my doctoral research at the University of Central Florida, I investigated the models and algorithms for complex networks, such as the World Wide Web, social networks and various biological networks. My main career goal is to become an independent researcher in the area of biomedical informatics. As a short-term research objective, I hope to leverage my experience in the areas of network analysis and biosurveillance to devise new methods and software applications for achieving earlier and more precise detection of drug adverse effects.
