Maryam works on a project that explores use of Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to extract information from electronic health records (EHRs), specifically imaging text reports, which could help with early prediction of breast cancer recurrence events. The aim of her project is identifying the risk and prognostic factors associated with breast cancer and predicting patient outcome to improve surveillance and detect recurrence early to offer better care for at-risk patients.
