Title: Using Machine Learning to Improve Patient Care in the Emergency Department and Identify Individuals Colonized with Carbapenem Producing Organisms

Speaker: Eili Klein

Eili Klein has been associated with the Center for Disease Dynamics Economics & Policy since its founding and is currently a fellow. Dr. Klein is a mathematical ecologist and epidemiologist whose research focuses on the role of behavior in the spread of infectious diseases. Examining how individuals respond to incentives for both healthy and unhealthy behavior – an area which economics has a lot to say – and how this then impacts the spread disease can improve policy responses to epidemic diseases by giving policymakers and health-care providers clear tools for thinking about how certain actions can influence the spread of disease transmission.

Dr. Klein has authored numerous publications on the evolution and spread of antimicrobial drug-resistance, with particular reference to the emergence of antibiotic and antimalarial drug resistance. This has included descriptions of the burden and seasonality of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), as well as other pathogens including carbapenem-resistant enterococci. Dr. Klein has also looked at how patients view the prescribing of antibiotics and what relationship this holds to the primary messaging regarding the overuse of antibiotics. Dr. Klein is an assistant professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. He joined the Hopkins faculty in 2012 after finishing his PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology from Princeton University.
