Nathan Patrick Palmer, Ph.D.

Nathan Palmer, PhD

Senior Research Scientist in Biomedical Informatics
Director of Data and Analytics Platforms, Center for Computational Biomedicine

Nathan Palmer received a PhD in computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studying machine learning, protein folding, and functional genomics. He then held a postdoctoral research position in the lab of Isaac Kohane at Harvard Medical School, during which his research interests expanded to include large-scale genomics, epidemiology, and medical informatics. He then went on to direct the Healthcare Data Science Program in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School.

In his current role as Director of Data and Analytics Platforms for the Center for Computational Biomedicine (CCB), Dr. Palmer is part of a team of leading-edge technologists who evaluate and deploy modern data analytic processing and storage platforms to meet the needs of emergent research programs supported by CCB, with the goal of improving research reproducibility, scale, and efficiency. This team provides access to data resources comprising tens of billions of medical facts from tens of millions of patients to the research community at HMS, and develops both the technical and methodological solutions to perform novel analytics at scale.

Dr. Palmer continues to work in the area of functional genomics and epidemiology through collaborations with the various Harvard teaching hospitals.
