Areas of Interest

Dr. Wiens's primary research interests lie at the intersection of machine learning, data mining, and medicine. The overarching goal of her research is to develop the computational methods needed to help organize, process, and transform patient data into actionable knowledge, and to work toward using machine learning and data mining to build models that will leverage electronic health records in ways that can help healthcare providers improve patient outcomes. Her work has applications in modeling disease progression and predicting adverse outcomes, including work on developing accurate patient risk stratification approaches that leverage spatiotemporal data, with the ultimate goal of reducing the rate of healthcare-associated infections among patients admitted to hospitals in the U.S.
