My research focuses on the use and effectiveness of coaching and appreciation feedback in healthcare. I lead a team that develops a software-based precision feedback system to generate messages about performance to healthcare professionals and teams. My work involves the processing of performance data to detect signals of motivating information that can be delivered with algorithmically prioritized messages, to support performance improvement and sustainment. I lead the DISPLAY-Lab, which collaborates with researchers in a range of clinical and health-related domains, including biomedical informatics, implementation science, and human-centered design.

Reich conducts global change research on plants, soils, ecosystems and people across a range of scales. His work links fundamental physiology with community dynamics and ecosystem structure and function, from the patch to the globe, within the context of the myriad of global environmental challenges that face us. This includes studying the effects on natural and human ecosystems of rising CO2 and associated climate change, biodiversity loss, and wildfire. This research involves a variety of tools and approaches (long-term experiments, observations, global data compilations, statistical and simulation models), a diverse set of ecosystems (boreal forest, temperate grassland, and more), and a range of scales (local, regional, global). The overarching goal is to understand what we humans are doing to nature in order to help orchestrate a shift towards a nature-forward prioritization that will in turn support and sustain human society.

I studied physics and creative writing and became interested in the fate of our environment; over time I began using tools from each focal area to advance ecological science in a changing world

I study medication prescription information and work on teams that create and evaluate applications of natural language processing to medication prescription information. The main thrust of my research in pharmacy informatics focuses on automating subtasks that pertain to medication prescribing by clinicians and medication prescription review by pharmacists. In addition, I work with the Knowledge Systems Lab in the Department of Learning Health Sciences to specify model repository requirements for making AI/ML models findable, accessible. interoperable, and reusable.

My research focuses on developing advanced numerical models and computational tools to enhance our understanding and prediction capabilities for both terrestrial and extraterrestrial climate systems. By leveraging the power of data science, I aim to unravel the complexities of atmospheric dynamics and climate processes on Earth, as well as on other planets such as Mars, Venus, and Jupiter.

My approach involves the integration of large-scale datasets, including satellite observations and ground-based measurements, with statistical methods and sophisticated machine learning algorithms including vision-based large models. This enables me to extract meaningful insights and improve the accuracy of climate models, which are crucial for weather forecasting, climate change projections, and planetary exploration.

My research seeks to exploit graph-based modeling theory and the tools of machine learning for efficient control of physical dynamical systems and control co-design in these systems. I am particularly interested in the design of graph-based machine/deep learning model structures that are compatible with basic physics, and using those model structures for real-time actions. Application of interest include advanced manufacturing, thermal and energy storage systems.
