Summary

Dr. Martin Michalowski's domain of expertise is Artificial Intelligence (AI) with research interests spanning several AI areas of particular importance to medical informatics including data integration, data modeling, clinical decision support, and knowledge representation. Automated reasoning, including constraint-based approaches, data analytics using spatio-temporal analysis methods, and Bayesian-based machine learning for game playing, rounds out his research background.

Dr. Michalowski's research philosophy in the area of medical informatics is centered on interdisciplinarity and brings advanced AI methods and approaches to clinical decision support, including mitigation of computerized clinical practice guidelines for complex patients, and personalized medicine. Methodologically, he uses constraint-based reasoning to provide clinicians with decision support at the point of care. He also applies problem modeling techniques to capture knowledge required for improving treatment decisions and uses big data analytics to support personalized medicine. He is also involved in the development of mobile educational tools for educators and students where he uses integrated automated reasoning, knowledge representation using ontologies, and human factors design.

Dr. Michalowski is a member of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) and American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) and is a program committee member for conferences including AMIA, AIME, and AAAI, among others. He serves on various grant review committees and he is co-chair of the Joint Workshop on Health Intelligence (W3PHIAI).
