    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My research focuses on modeling, visualization, analysis, and management of multimedia data sets in three major application areas: neuroinformatics, bioinformatics, and medical informatics. Our group is currently developing algorithms and tools for automated annotation and retrieval of EEG and other signals based on content, as well as tools to detect enrichment of co-occurrences of events and signal patterns.

    This problem domain shares many characteristics with problems in bioinformatics and in the mining of medical information in general --- the significant variation among and within individuals, the variety and non-uniformity of information available for an individual under any particular conditions, and the unique and complex mosaic of environmental factors that might contribute to a particular response. We seek to design approaches that are applicable and accessible to researchers in a variety of areas.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
