Themes of public health and equity inspire my innovations in computer science. These themes have led to my focus on 1) Design and development of data mining and machine learning methods to address challenges related to data and goals of public health and 2) Fairness and ethics in the design and use of data and algorithms embedded in social systems.

Research Interests:
1. Public and population health
2. socio-environmental determinants
3. machine learning/AI and technology in societal systems (social computing)
4. algorithmic fairness
5. inequity and technology
