Our research goals are to advance patient-centered healthcare and
to provide insight into biological markers by answering clinically relevant research questions in the field of health informatics.
Our approach consists of refining relevant research questions in collaboration with medical professionals, networking with data holders when needed, employing consumer-centric devices as sensing tools, and applying appropriate statistical methods (e.g., Machine Learning and Deep Learning) to develop predicting models from observational research.
