Short Biosketch

Dr. Wojtusiak is an Associate Professor of Health Informatics in the George Mason University Department of Health Administration and Policy, and the Chief of GMU Health Informatics program. He also serves as the Director of the GMU Machine Learning and Inference Laboratory, and the Director of GMU Center for Discovery Science and Health Informatics.

Dr. Janusz Wojtusiak obtained with honors his Master's degree in Computer Science from Jagiellonian University in 2001, and Ph.D. in Computational Sciences and Informatics (concentration in Computational Intelligence and Knowledge Mining) from George Mason University in 2007. After completing his PhD he became a post-doctoral fellow in the GMU Department of Health Administration and Policy.

Dr. Wojtusiak's research interests include development and use of intelligent systems in healthcare. In particular he focuses on creating and applying intelligent methods to analyze complex medical, health and healthcare data. His work is based on machine learning techniques that understand semantics of data and create transparent models that can be used to support decisions or work autonomously. Dr. Wojtusiak's expertise also includes data mining and knowledge discovery, evolutionary computation, agent-based simulation, and mobile technologies. Application areas of his work span throung clinical, managerial and non-healthcare projects. He authored or co-authored multiple research papers in these areas.

Dr. Wojtusiak collaborated with multiple national and international institutions including University of Louisville, University of Bremen, Germany, and AGH University of Science and Technology. In 2007, he has been a fellow of Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (Hanse Institute for Advanced Study), Germany. He is participating in High-Performance Modelling and Simulation for Big Data Applications COST European initiative. Dr. Wojtusiak chaired Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Working Group (KDDM-WG) in American Medical Informatics Asociation (AMIA) in 2013-2014 term.
