Departments & Organizations
I have extensive experience analyzing scientific problems and devising adaptable solutions using informatics technologies. I have designed, developed, and supervised the construction of diverse informatics systems for industry, clinical medicine and the biosciences. I have played central, guiding role in a wide range of projects focused on the issues of clinical trials applications, data integration, and creation of flexible application architectures, mobile solutions, and Internet evolvable systems. These include devising and building: a) the EAV/CR data storage approach for the Human Brain Project, in use in the SenseLab Project, b) the Query Integrator System: a prototype ontology-mediated federated database integration approach, c) the DISCO federated data integration framework for the NIH Neuroscience blue print initiative, d) a phone-base reinforcement platform to increase medication adherence, and e) a mobile survey system for pain evaluation for VA patients. I have significantly been involved in several collaborative projects including: a) the TrialDB clinical trials management system (joined copyright holder), b) the VACS calculator, and c) The TRIS system, a generic Internet-driven worldwide SMS mobile application framework to design, and conduct ecological momentary assessments.
