The NYU Langone Comprehensive Obesity Initiative is a new, institution-wide effort to better understand, treat and manage obesity at the population and clinical levels. The Initiative unites cutting-edge population health, clinical, and basic science research through a uniquely comprehensive electronic data source -- a multi-disciplinary DataBridge. This rich resource will enable investigators to address long-standing questions from completely new perspectives, using cutting-edge machine learning and other big data techniques. Key insights will be translated into real, evidence-based obesity prevention, treatment, and management solutions. This position helps to test a large, comprehensive repository for integration of diverse data pertaining to obesity (basic, clinical, and population sciences). Contributes to the creation of a user-friendly infrastructure that integrates and makes usable diverse and disparate data, and provides foundations for integration of advanced machine learning methods. Conducts wide-ranging analyses on these data, interprets and presents outcomes.
