Professional Activities

As a faculty member at FIU’s Department of Information Systems and Business Analytics, and a Research Associate at the VA HSR&D/RR&D Center of Innovation on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, my research involves the use of innovative analytics methods to improve patient experience, increase provider productivity and reduce overall healthcare costs. These include the the design of a blockchain-based solution that would enable patients to share their validated comprehensive treatment records with peers, a real-time clinical recommender system that provides recommendations for medications along with associated cost information, a solution to automate provider documentation, and an auditing algorithm to maximize deterrence from fraud, waste, and abuse.
