Dr. Leroy focuses on natural language processing and has been working extensively with medical and healthcare text. She is interested in extracting data from free text in EHR for use as an additional data dimension in a variety of analyses. Her research interests related to valley fever include the automated extraction and analysis of information from EHR to discover symptom combinations of valley fever that would support early diagnosis.
My research focuses on machine learning and applied natural language processing. I believe that clinical notes contain information relevant to earlier diagnosis of VF.
