Public Biography
Oliver J. Bear Don't Walk IV is a citizen of the Apsáalooke Nation and a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Washington. Oliver’s research is at the intersection of clinical natural language processing, fairness, and ethics. Their thesis focused on the technical and ethical aspects of extracting patient-level socio-demographic information from clinical notes. Oliver’s current research focuses on applying intersectionality to fairness audits of machine learning used to support the care of patients with HIV and working with Indigenous communities to identify Indigenous social determinants of health and extract this information from the electronic health record when appropriate. Oliver is grateful for the community support which has brought them this far, and as such pays it forward through teaching, mentorship, and serving as an organizer and faculty for IndigiData and a member of the steering committee for the American Medical Informatics Association's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.
