Hi, I'm David Kartchner

I'm a PhD Student at Georgia Tech
I research natural language processing methods for extracting and synthesizing information from biomedical text to power applications in biomedicine, drug discovery and healthcare. My research at Georgia Tech focuses on active, weakly-supervised, and semi-supervised learning methods for text mining and information extraction with limited to no labeled data.
I currently work with Cassie Mitchell in the Laboratory for Pathology Dynamics. I previsouly completed a MS in Mathematics from Brigham Young University advised by Jeff Humpherys.
I have collaborated with scientists, developers, clinicians, and epidemiologists while working at Enveda Bioscienes, Facebook, GlaxoSmithKline, Recursion Pharmaceuticals, and Intermountain Healthcare.
