Dr. David Albers Labdavid-albers

Dr. David Albers lab focuses on advancing biomedicine using:

-data assimilation of both clinician and patient collected data to forecast physiology and compute new phenotypes

-health care process modeling and analysis

-temporal-focused spectral analysis and information theoretic tools

-mechanistic physiologic models using clinical data

-discovering phenotypes using temporal information within clinical data

-visualizing patient health evolution in an intensive care setting

-deconvolving biases present in clinical data

-computational machinery based on variational inference to discover features that can be used to define phenotypes and other clinically actionable quantities
