Research & Publications
Dr. Wilson's research focuses is "interventional data science" - using the tools of data science and digital health (including machine learning, real-time analytics, and wearable devices) to target diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to the right patient at the right time. He pursues interventional studies to try to help patients live longer, happier lives.

Extensive Research Description
Dr. Wilson uses the tools of data science - machine learning, digital health devices (like wearables) and epidemiologic and translational research methods to target diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to patients at the point of care. His particular interest is in making care delivery more efficient by using data science approaches to target interventions to patients most likely to benefit from them. These models can reduce the number of individuals exposed to a drug or intervention unnecessarily, reducing adverse events, and lowering costs.
