Welcome to Min Wu's Home!

I became a faculty in Health Care Informatics Program in the College of Health Sciences at University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee since 2003. My previous research projects at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill involved database, computer-based medical education, ROC evaluation methods, medical standard (DICOM), medical image processing and human-computer interaction (HCI).

Research Interests

My primary research interests are to identify unmet medical needs and implement technologies in their solutions. Current research interests include health database applications (medical images and video), CIS (CMR, SOAP, POMR), dental informatics, HIPAA, ROC analysis in computer-based medical education and testing, decision-making (Knowledge Server), and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
