Ross Professorship and associate dean of research at the UTHealth School of Health Information Sciences. This area of informatics is called patient-centered cognitive support.

The NCCD, which will carry out six research projects, is a collaborative initiative involving the University of Washington, Arizona State University, University of Maryland College Park, Baylor College of Medicine, Intermountain Healthcare, Department of Veterans Affairs and Baylor Health Care System. The center will be housed in the new UTHealth Behavioral and Biomedical Sciences Building.
