Dr. Regan is an experimental psychologist with expertise in research methods and statistical analysis. She designs and implements data collection systems for clinical research projects. Her ongoing projects include data management for several multi-center randomized controlled trials of smoking cessation interventions, analysis of electronic medical record data to assess outcomes of hospital-based initiatives to address substance use disorders, and several observational studies of patients living with HIV in Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda.
Dr. Regan's interests include applying natural language processing, data mining and machine learning techniques to develop methods for longitudinal medical record data in observational studies. Her research involves developing algorithms for classifying patients on uncoded or inadequately coded characteristics such as smoking status, over the counter medication use and foreign born status.
