FOCUS
Kevin’s research applies informatics methods to address public health issues and health disparities among marginalized patient populations. Specifically, he seeks to understand the effect of biases in care delivery and its impact on patient data quality and health outcomes using informatics tools (e.g., natural language processing, machine learning models). Kevin is also interested in assessing how the digital divide among patient populations and health care organizations worsens health outcomes. Kevin will translate his research to communicate and develop policy solutions that can improve clinical data quality and make health care more equitable for all populations.
