Research information:

Khaled El Emam heads the Electronic Health Information Laboratory (EHIL) and has a research program devoted to facilitating the sharing of health information for secondary purposes while protecting the privacy of patients. In his lab, they develop technology to facilitate health data-sharing, including de-identification methods and secure computation methods to allow surveillance or analysis without compromising privacy. The different methods are suitable under different circumstances and constraints, from individual-level data release and on-going surveillance to interactive remote analysis.

Dr. El Emam’s research spans theoretical work (which consists of developing mathematical models and metrics of re-identification risk), empirical work (evaluations of our models and metrics through simulations and controlled studies), applied work (evaluations on large data sets), and knowledge translation (building software tools, instruments, and education).
