Population and Behavioral Health Informatics Group

Our research focuses on using informatics techniques — particularly natural language processing –- to address research questions in population health.  Working with national and international collaborators from psychology, information science, computer science, bioethics, and public health, we develop tools, methods, and linguistic resources designed to support the analysis of existing text data,  with the overarching goal of better understanding health behavior and health outcomes at the population level.  In the past, our work has been funded by the National Library of Medicine.  Currently, we are funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
