Associate Professor
Department of Biomedical Informatics

Dr. Gonzalez is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Arizona State University and Data Core Director for one of the largest NIH/NIA supported Alzheimer’s Disease Centers. She leads the DIEGO (Discovery through Integration and Extraction of Genomic knOwledge) lab.

She has positioned her research in the cross-cutting field of knowledge discovery from “big data”: using natural language processing (NLP) to extract information from clinical records, journal articles, and social media postings to elucidate data patterns, trends, and relationships that can aid the discovery process in genetic research, precision medicine, clinical decision support, and public health monitoring and surveillance.

Her federal research funding includes a contract and R01 from the NLM, an R56 from the NIAID, a sub-contract award for the Data Core of a P30 from the NIA, and a year of exploratory funding from the FDA JIFSAN program, for a total of 2.8 million dollars received in awards since 2010. Over the same period, she has published 18 journal articles in JAMIA, JBI, Oxford Bioinformatics, IEEE/ACM Transactions in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and the IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, among others. She has also published 33 peer-reviewed conference papers in the field since 2007, at venues such as ISMB/ECCB, AMIA and the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing, among others.

Dr. Gonzalez regularly serves as a reviewer for the NIH, including participation in the NLM permanent review panel (BLIRC) from 2008 to 2013. She has also served as reviewer for the National Science Foundation and numerous journals and conferences, including the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, the Journal of Biomedical Informatics, PLOS One, Database, and many others. Before obtaining her PhD, Dr. Gonzalez worked as a Software Engineer and held other management positions for over seven years, leading the development of large-scale projects on database monitoring, imaging, and multimedia production.
