Dr. Roche‐Lima earned his PhD in Computer Sciences from the University of Manitoba, Canada. He has a broad background applying computer science to complex biological data. He joined the Medical Science Campus, University of Puerto Rico (MSC, UPR), where he works as an Assistant Professor teaching topic such as data science, bioinformatics and biomedical informatics. His research areas are focused on the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning methods for prediction, analysis and interpretation of biomedical data. He is also the Director of the Integrated Informatics Service core (IIS) and Coordinator of the Research Infrastructure core (RIC) of the Center for Collaborative Research in Health Disparities, which is a federal funded center for minority institutions at MSC, UPR. The goals of these cores are to provide one point of contact to assist researchers with the general aspects of biomedical informatics (i.e. bioinformatics, health informatics and operational informatics) and other related areas (e.g. genomics and proteomics) as they apply to the biomedical science research.
Dr. Roche-Lima most recent papers describe using novel supervised learning algorithms for the implementation of bioinformatics and clinical informatics applications.
