(Selva Muthu Kumaran Sathappan) #384

Hello Everyone,

I am Selva. Recently completed my graduation focused on Machine Learning and joined as a Research Associate in a public health domain. Came to know about this OHDSI community through few of my friends. Looks like I am the one here with little to nil knowledge of OHDSI. Looking forward to learn and collaborate with you people. Require your guidance and support. Thank you.


Congratulations @krfeeney! Exciting news on your new position; we are looking forward to new network studies generating insightful evidence that will change patients’ experiences! As always please reach out if you think I can help in anyway…Congratulations!

(Andreas Weinberger Rosen) #388

Hi everyone,

My name is Andreas Rosen. I’m a MD and PhD student at Zealand University Hospital, Center of Surgical Science, Denmark. Currently our center is implementing the OMOP-CDM, where I’m working with mapping the data from the various Danish national health registries. We’re aim at investigating factors in the perioperative that affects postoperatively morbidity and mortality, along with cancer recurrence.

Kind regards,

Hello everyone, I’m Cristinner, born in Anhui Province. Now I’m studied in Fudan University, my major is epidemiology and health statistics, and I will receive my PhD degree after my graduation in June. And I got my masters degree in Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention in 2016. My work focuses on the relationship between health literacy and quality of life and health outcomes among cancer survivors; and the relationship between dietary and chronic diseases. I’m quite interested in data analysis. Looking forward to joining you and contributing where I can. Thanks. Best wishes.

Hello. My name is Todd Price, PhD and I work in PA as a Senior Decision Support Analyst.

I am looking forward to meeting everyone and getting to know more about the group in terms of resource sharing and understanding between everyone.

My day to day work involves working with data sets from our native systems and helping staff and groups make sense of the trends and information we are seeing.

(Dave Barman) #395

Hello, my name is Dave Barman. I am an information scientist and I have been working in the analytics and data management field since 2003. I have worn many hats during my career, as a developer, infrastructure specialist, business analyst, project manager, data architect, solution architect etc. At the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia I worked as a founding member of the team for enterprise analytics and guided the enterprise through adoption and maturation of analytics. Having ‘been there done that’ for many aspects of EHR data, I am thrilled now to be part of the OHDSI community and want to put my experience to work in advancing the CDM and assisting organizations in adoption. I am working with Odysseus Data Services and thrilled to start on this journey. It is a pleasure to meet everyone.

(Rajeev Dixit) #398

Hi, This is Rajeev. I am co-founder of 47Billion (http://47billion.com). We are working on healthcare automation products in risk adjustment, auditing and quality management (HEDIS). We are developing pipelines with structured and unstructured data to ingest in CDM and provide HEDIS measurements over CDM. I am interested in others who mapped quality measurements over CDM so we can co-operate and contribute to each other’s efforts. Looking forward to learn more, ask questions and respond to anything we know based on our experience.

(Benjamin Skov Kaas Hansen) #400

Hello everyone,

I’m Benjamin (usually, just Ben) from Denmark and currently doing a PhD in clinical pharmacology and medical informatics, trying to use electronic medical records and national registries to detect/verify polypharmacy-related adverse drug reactions, at Zealand University Hospital in Denmark. My main areas of scientific interest are valid rational healthcare utilisation, causal inference, patient risk-stratification and visualisation.

After becoming MD, I did a Master’s on epidemiology and biostatistics in Rome, Italy. I’m R fluent, know quite some Python, SQL (now learning PostgreSQL) and Stan (for Bayesian data analysis).

I hope to get to know and work with a bunch of you!

I am a Nigerian with first graduate program in Machine Learning(ML) to support electricity distribution and management . See my My Previous work.
Currently i’ve switched into applying my ML skills in healthcare for better Connected Health & Decision support Management. I am now graduate student (MSC) at the department of computer science, University of Victoria, Canada with focus on Computational Geriatrics. using my background is in software engineering and data analytics to support several industrial partners within the health sector.
I currently lead a winning team for healthcare challenge called Code Hack. Seeing this success, i felt i am indebted to the community of healthcare to add more value.

I will be glad to involve in software development and analytics(Machine Learning & AI)

(Elpida Kontsioti) #404

Hi everyone!

My name is Elpida and I am a PhD student at the University of Liverpool, working on developing a Bayesian approach to detecting signals of drug-drug interactions in spontaneous reporting databases.

Before starting my doctoral studies, I completed a 5-year Pharmacy degree in Athens, Greece.

In terms of programming skills, I mostly use Python and SQL (lately at an increasing rate), while I was involved in R and Matlab projects in the past.

I very much enjoyed the community vibes during the European symposium in Rotterdam and look forward to getting actively involved and interacting with you :slight_smile:
