I have had many letters published in Communications of the ACM, the monthly journal of the Association for Computing Machinery.
I co-created a new information extraction method denoted Text Nailing (published in ACM Interactions in October 2017) with an aim to advance the field of natural language processing. Text Nailing used to help publishing several manuscripts in high-impact journals (including Scientific Reports and The American Journal of Gastroenterology, published by Nature Publishing Group).
I created a human-size assemblage called “The Man Who Had Them All” that is permanently exhibited at the IBM building in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I describe the story of that man in an article that appears in ACM Interactions (July 2017).
I co-created MELD-Plus in 2017—a highly accurate risk score that, if adopted by United Network for Organ Sharing, will extend the lives of many patients who are suffering from end-stage liver disease.
I founded EMRBots in 2015, helping thousands to practice machine-learning algorithms, publish papers, and advance teaching by using simulated electronic medical records.
I am the first author on several original research journal manuscripts focused on health care, and I collaborated with prominent faculty from Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard, and MIT.
I have invented and co-invented more than 20 inventions at Microsoft, at IBM, and for start-ups. My inventions include systems and methods focused on improving health. I also have invented methods to speed Internet browsing and to transfer files faster compared to using emails or instant messaging.
I was appointed an IEEE Senior Member in April 2018.
