Harry Hochheiser, PhD

Associate Professor, Department of Biomedical Informatics
Associate Professor in the Intelligent Systems Program
Director, Biomedical Informatics Training Program
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Interests:
Dr. Hochheiser’s research focuses on the design of usable systems for use in clinical and research settings. He is particularly interested in using user-centered design techniques to inform the design of highly-interactive information visualization systems for the interpretation of complex data sets in domains such as bioinformatics and health care. Dr. Hochheiser is currently working on the development of user-centered tools for annotating, searching, and browsing of biomedical data in online repositories. As part of the FaceBase (www.facebase.org) project, he is working on the design, implementation, and evaluation of highly-interactive tools for exploring genomic, genetic, demographic, and phenotypic data sets from craniofacial research, with ultimate goal of developing tools and techniques that can be applied to a other domains.
