About Mamoun Mardini
Dr. Mardini is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics at the University of Florida (UF). He is a trained computer scientist and engineer with research expertise in applied artificial intelligence and wearable technology in healthcare
Dr. Mardini’s research interests lie in using data science approaches and wearable technology to improve healthcare. This plan is significant because it is highly responsive and in line with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) vision for artificial intelligence: “the NIH is dedicated to harnessing the potential of the computational and quantitative sciences to elevate the impact and efficiency of biomedical research”
Dr. Mardini is directing the GeronTechnology lab that aims to employ data science and wearable technology to extract insightful knowledge from data & solve age-related health problems. Dr. Mardini is mainly interested in pursuing two research directions. The first focuses on mining electronic health records (EHR) to build evidence-based platforms that can aid in clinical decision-making. This research can help facilitate the communication between patients and clinicians to maximize benefit and minimize hurt.
The second direction focuses on building a digital phenotyping framework that can facilitate data collection from personally-held devices, such as smartwatches. This direction has great impact on understanding individuals’ behaviors momentarily in their real-life environment (a.k.a. ecological momentary assessment) and allowing clinicians to intervene quickly.
Note: I am always looking for motivated students and postdocs to join my research lab. Drop me a brief email about your background and your research interests
