Continuous Analysis of Mobile Health Data among Medically Vulnerable Populations

Focused Research Program

Our Focus

The goal of the Continuous Analysis of Mobile Health Data among Medically Vulnerable Populations FRP is to leverage mobile health data sources for developing dynamic models privately in the cloud that predict diseases and anticipate changes in physiology or behavior in large cohort studies and clinical trials among underserved populations.

Focused Research Programs led by:

  • Nicole Spartano, PhD, Research Assistant Professor, School of Medicine
  • Lisa Quintiliani, PhD, Associate Professor, School of Medicine
  • Vasiliki Kalavri, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science

Research Thrusts

  1.  Clinical, mobile health data measurement

Identify data streams and analytic tasks of relevance to the clinical community and population cohorts.

  1. Cloud and streaming data infrastructure

Design, develop, and deploy a Cloud testbed for continuous collaborative analytics on private health data streams.

  1.  Machine learning and federated data approaches

Develop statistical and machine learning models to analyze mobile health data.
