Selected Project Experience

PHIT for Duty (US Navy/Army) (2012 to date)—Co-Principal Investigator (Artificial Intelligence/Big Data). The goal of this project is to develop an extensible mobile nonintrusive physiological and behavioral sensor and survey data collection and analysis framework to deliver personal health assessments and recommendations driven by a real-time AI decision system and tailor self-help advisories to avert health problems in high-risk personnel exposed to psychological trauma. In essence, warfighters learn what it means to be individually healthy, so are able to both self-detect deviations in the battlefield, and later return to baseline levels after reintegration into society, thus building resilience and supporting the prevention of PTSD and other disorders.

Windows Azure Evaluation Project (Microsoft) (2011 to date)—Principal Scientist. The purpose of this project is to conduct a comprehensive study of the most important challenges and possible solutions involved in using the Azure platform for research involving Big Data (esp. vis-a-vis Bioinformatics). The expected results include: a) development of new types of scalable applications; b) improved distributed database designs; c) performance analyses including scalability; d) analysis of legal and ethical considerations.

The Breast and Colon Cancer Family Registries (BC-CFR) is a research network funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to study the interplay of environmental and genetic factors in the development of breast and colorectal cancer. RTI is the Informatics Support Center for the network. As such, RTI develops core software and database technologies, performs data analysis, and assists investigators with experimental design.

Catalogue Automation Tool (CAT) (2006 to date)—Principal Scientist/Inventor. The purpose of this project is to build an adaptive real-time learning system that provides the user personalized electronic search results based on past behavior, comprising: a method for capturing clickstream, creating user profiles, accessing others’ profiles to augment individual search results, and presenting bet fit results.

Human and Machine Vision (Copycat) (2006 to date)—Principal Scientist/Inventor. This project focuses on the development of a software system that implements a computational model of the human visual system whose design principles are derived from psychophysical observations of human performance during active visual search tasks via the use of infrared eye trackers. The method developed allow for the optimal transformation of psychophysical observations into sets of computable statements. Provisional patent submitted.
