Health Analytics

Health Analytics bridges fundamental mathematical and computational modeling with health services research and health economics as a means of translating health and healthcare data into knowledge and decision making. My research in this area is part of larger research program at Georgia Tech, supported and disseminated at my group's web site Health Analytics Group at GT.

This page has been initiated with the National Science Foundation support (CAREER Award CMMI-0954283) and multiple seed grants from the Institute of People and Technology, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Veterans Administration, Centers of Disease Prevention and Control, George Foundation Predictive Health, and Emory Preparedness and Emergency Response Research Center.
