Alicia is a third year PhD student in Systems & Information Engineering. She is interested in using computational health informatics to create novel interventions and advance policies in public health, especially accessibility to medical care, women’s health, and mental health. She is currently working on applying machine learning to text communications to model suicide risk in real-time, assessing the data quality for the College Health Surveillance Network, identifying parental attributes associated with the vaccination of teenagers against HPV, and, most recently, received a grant to mentor an undergraduate student for ‘Health and Insurance Literacy Among College Students’.
