I am an Instructor in Emergency Medicine and Medical Toxicology at Weill Cornell Medical College. My research focuses on using artificial intelligence for drug discovery and syndromic surveillance. I am also interested in creating computable representations of medical reasoning.
To this end, I use social media (Twitter, YouTube, etc) for syndromic surveillance and to construct computable knowledge representations. We also try to explain interesting patterns we observe in the context of known biochemical signaling as contained in repositories such as PubChem.
I am grateful for funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) in the form of their Loan Repayment Program and start-up funding provided by the Emergency Department at Weill Cornell Medical College.
