- Zitao Liu succesfully completed his disseration work on 'Time Series Modeling of Irregularly Sampled
Multivariate Clinical Data' in August 2016. Congratulations.
MS in Computer Science, Department of Computer Science, Slovak Technical University, Bratislava, Slovakia, May 1988.
PhD in Computer Science, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, August 1997.
My research work is in machine learning, data mining, probabilistic modeling and their applications in biomedical informatics.
The main focus of my current research is the development of modern machine learning technologies for analysis of
high dimensional time-series data in electronic health record (EHR) data and their application in
clinical decision support and clinical alerting.
Current research funding:
- NIH/NIGMS R01GM088224. R01 Real-time detection of deviations in clinical care in ICU data streams (Principal Investigator)
- NIH/NLM R01LM011966. Improving Clinical Decision Support Reliability Using Anomaly Detection Methods (PI: Adam Wright, Partners Healthcare, Milos serves as a UPitt PI)
- NIH/NLM. Learning Electronic Medical Record. (PI: Shyam Visweswaran, Milos is a co-investigator)
