Dr. Gang Luo earned his PhD degree in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Luo is an assistant professor in the University of Utah’s Department of Biomedical Informatics.
Dr. Luo's research interests include health/clinical informatics (software system design/development and data analytics), big data, information retrieval, database systems, machine learning, data mining, and natural language processing with a focus on health applications. He has more than 50 publications and over two dozen patents in these areas. He invented the questionnaire-guided intelligent medical search engine iMed, intelligent personal health record, and SQL and compiler progress indicators. He has also worked on brain-computer interface and EEG brain wave analysis.
Following his PhD study, Dr. Luo worked as a research staff member at the IBM T.J.Watson Research Center, Hawthorne, NY (2004-2012). He joined the Department of Biomedical Informatics in August 2012 as an assistant professor.

“As a computer scientist by training, as well as a self-educated mathematician, I choose to work on health informatics because of the large number of real problems in this area. I enjoy interacting with people from various areas and am interested in combining advanced computing techniques, mathematical theory, and healthcare knowledge. I believe this combination will lead to major advances in health informatics that will help improve people’s daily living.”
