A - E
Barnes, Priscilla Applied Health Science, School of Public Health / IUB
Bio: Dr. Priscilla Barnes' research interests are in public health systems and services. More specifically, she examines inter-organizational factors that influence the quality of preventative services that disadvantaged populations receive within the U.S. public health system. She used primary and secondary data to create network-inspired visualization maps that illustrate types of partnerships (information sharing, coordination, cooperation, collaboration) that promote delivery of health education and population health management initiatives in local communities.
F - J
Harezlak, Jaroslaw Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Public Health-Bloomington / IUB
Bio: Dr. Harezlak is an Associate Professor interested in brain connectivity. He has been working with groups both at IU and at other US institutions on statistical models to incorporate both structural and functional connectivity in regularized regression models.
K - O
McCormick, Bryan Recreation, Park & Tourism Studies, School of Public Health / IUB
Bio: My research focuses on the social and community functioning of people with severe mental illnesses. Through the use of a variety of research methods, we have examined such elements as daily physical activity, mood, and social context as well as recreation and support networks. My current work examines the role of networks and network members in the health behaviors of adults with schizophrenia.
Menachemi, Nir Health Policy and Management, Richard M, Fairbanks School of Public Health / IUPUI
Bio: Dr. Nir Menachemi serves as Chair of the Health Policy and Management department of the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health and holds the rank of Professor. He also holds an appointment as Affiliated Scientist with the Regenstrief Institute. Dr. Menachemi’s research examines how organizational strategies (e.g., health information technology adoption) impact critical performance measures, including quality outcomes and financial performance. In addition, he has published extensively on health policy and public health topics ranging from obesity issues to the impact of various laws or policies on health outcomes.
Disciplines: public health

Shih, Patrick Informatics, School of Informatics and Computing / Bloomington
Bio: I'm an Assistant Professor of Informatics in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington. I am a Fellow of the Center for Computer-Mediated Communication (CCMC). I am also an affiliated faculty at the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior (CISAB), the Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI), and the Institute for Software Research (ISR) at the University of California, Irvine. I am interested in utilizing mixed methods approaches to tackle research problems in online and geographic communities. Specifically, my current research focuses on leveraging awareness of individual and community activities embedded in sensor technologies, smart devices, social media, and online forums in the design and construction of novel persuasive interfaces and civic engagement platforms that facilitate sustainable motivational and behavioral changes.
U - Z
Watson, Dennis P. Health Policy and Management, School of Public Health / IUPUI
Bio: Dr. Watson’s research and teaching interests include behavioral health, high risk populations and health behaviors, and health services implementation and evaluation.
Wu, Xiaogang Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, School of Informatics and Computing / IUPUI
Bio: Xiaogang Wu received his PhD degree in 2005 on Control Science and Engineering from Huazhong University of Science & Technology (HUST), Wuhan, China. One year after that, he was appointed to associate professor of the Institute for Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (IPRAI) in HUST. He has over 10 years of research experience in image processing, machine learning, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, chaotic dynamics and complex systems. His previous research focused on nonlinear dynamical analysis of complex models, especially estimating parameters of chaotic systems by nonlinear time series analysis, symbolic dynamics and chaos synchronization, etc. He is currently a Bioinformatics Scientist in the Hood Lab at Institute for Systems Biology (ISB). Before he joined ISB, he was a Research Scientist in the School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC) at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). He was also affiliated with Indiana Center for Systems Biology and Personalized Medicine (CSBPM, a signature center in Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis). His current research focuses on bioinformatics and systems biology, e.g., applying machine learning, swarm intelligence, and complex network modeling techniques into identifying systems biomarkers for early diagnosis and predicting drug responses based on systems pharmacology. He is also an Associate Editor of Frontiers in Systems Biology since 2009.
