Biomedical Natural Language Processing
Dr. Koola is a physician scientist specializing in Biomedical Informatics and Hospital Medicine. He specializes in the area of big data machine learning for predictive analytics. In particular, he is interested in using electronic health records to improve care delivery--particularly for patients with advanced liver disease. Using risk prediction models in a healthcare context requires understanding of: (i) the healthcare system of intended use; (ii) risk model building; (iii) risk model assessment; and (iv) risk model re-calibration. Additionally, Dr. Koola is interested in visual analytics, data modeling, and health services research.
My research focuses on solving natural language processing problems in biomedical sciences (bioNLP).
