Dr. Clifford is the interim Chair of Biomedical Informatics at Emory and an associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech.
After training in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics, Dr. Clifford received a DPhil in Neural Networks and Biomedical Engineering from the University of Oxford, United Kingdom. He received postdoctoral research training from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he later became a Principal Research Scientist and managed the development of the world’s largest open access critical care database (MIMIC II). From 2009 to 2014, Dr. Clifford served as Associate Professor and Fellow of Kellogg College at the University of Oxford in the Department of Engineering Science, where he helped lead the Intelligent Patient Monitoring Group. He was also Director of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Healthcare Innovation at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME).
Dr. Clifford has an international reputation in critical care data analysis and the application of signal processing and machine learning to medicine. He helped found the Sleep, Circadian Rhythm and Neuroscience Institute (SCNi) at the University of Oxford, where he is an Honorary Professor.
Dr. Clifford’s research interests include machine learning and signal processing for data fusion, prediction and developing confidence intervals and trust metrics. His application areas in health include critical care, sleep & circadian rhythms, and resource-constrained environments (in developing countries). Dr. Clifford leads research on scalable and affordable healthcare: finding ways to use intelligent signal processing, machine learning and physiological modeling to reduce costs, increase accuracy and improve access in healthcare using enormous data streams.
