I am a Research Assistant Professor for the Institute for Health Informatics at the University of Minnesota. Prior to this position, I was a Postdoctoral Scholar for the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my PhD in Logic, Computation and Methodology from Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Philosophy.
The focus of my research is hidden variables in causal graphs. I have also begun collaborating with medical scientists to apply new and novel machine learning methods to generate new insights in various health domains, such as alcohol use disorder, schizophrenia, and physical trauma. See my research page for more information on my research interests and publications.
My wife, Rebecca Morris, does research on the philosophy of mathematical practice.
