Email: Juckett@msu.edu

Fields of Interest: My current research is in the area of biomedical informatics. Working with collaborators from MPC and MSU, I am leading the efforts to build a person-in-pain phenotype model which will be linked to treatment outcomes. Using psychometric tools and natural language processing, our team will build models and test predictions to evaluate whether community medical practices can provide evidence-generating medicine to underpin the development of evidence-based practice tuned to the community setting.
