Nicoleta Serban is Associate Professor in the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. She has co-developed along with Julie Swann the Health Analytics group at Georgia Tech, an on-going initiative in the development of analytical methods along with integration of large data sets in addressing important research focus areas in healthcare delivery. Dr. Serban's research interests on Health Analytics span various dimensions including large-scale data representation with a focus on processing patient-level health information into data features dictated by various considerations, such as data-generation process and data sparsity; machine learning and statistical modeling to acquire knowledge from a compilation of health-related datasets with a focus on geographic and temporal variations; and integration of statistical estimates into informed decision making in healthcare delivery and into managing the complexity of the healthcare system. In 2010, she was granted the NSF CAREER award for research in service equity and access. Her research record is quite diverse, from mathematical statistics to modeling to data analysis to qualitative insights on causality and complexity. To date, she has published more than 30 journal articles in highly reputed journals, and a collaborative (with Dr. William B. Rouse) book published by MIT Press. The book title is Understanding and Managing the Complexity of Healthcare. She is an Area Editor for physical sciences, engineering, and the environment for Annals of Applied Statistics. She has reviewed for multiple funding agencies and she has been invited to contribute with her expertise in multiple workshops and meetings organized by the National Academy of Engineering.
