Dr. Gonzalez is Assistant 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 is also a member of the National Library of Medicine’s only chartered review committee – The Biomedical Library and Informatics Research Committee (BLIRC). She leads the DIEGO (Discovery through Integration and Extraction of Genomic knOwledge) lab, in the area of Knowledge Discovery, focusing her research on translational applications of information extraction using Natural Language Processing techniques. She has successfully led teams of students placing at the top of the Biocreative II.5 and Biocreative III biomedical NLP challenges, as well as the i2v2/VA clinical NLP challenge.

Dr. Gonzalez joined the BMI Department in 2006, after a successful one-year research fellowship within the Computer Science Department at ASU. She obtained her PhD in Computer Systems Engineering in December of 2000 from the University of Texas at El Paso, and joined Sam Houston State University as Assistant Professor of Computer Science. She has over 30 articles published in numerous prestigious conferences and journals including AMIA, PSB, ISMB, IEEE’s International Conference on Data Engineering, and ACM’s Multimedia, and IEEE/ACM Transactions in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, among others.

Dr. Gonzalez has also served as reviewer for the National Science Foundation, the Journal of Biomedical Informatics, and in the Program Committee of the IEEE International Conference on Web Services. 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.
