    Shengtian Sang

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Biomedical Informatics

    Bio I received my PhD from Dalian University of Technology (China), where I was working in the DUTIR team (information retrieval, natural language processing, data mining). My research area have focused on literature based discovery - mining new knowledge from biomedical literature. In Boussard Lab, my research is to establish different novel strategies to analyze Electronic Health Records for improving clinical decisions. Specifically, I am working on Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leak project, the goal of the project is to improve the diagnosis of CSF leaks though artificial intelligence methodologies.
