Hi, my name is Thomas Brox Røst. I am currently doing a PhD at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. I work on finding ways of reducing information overload in general practice patient records through automated knowledge extraction from the written narrative in patient histories.

You can usually find me at the Department of Computer and Information Science or at the Norwegian EHR Research Centre.

This winter (2008-2009) I’m a visiting researcher at Decision Systems Group, a biomedical informatics research laboratory in the Department of Radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA.
