David A. Randolph manages the Clinical Research Data Warehouse (CRDW), gathering data from various sources within UI Health. He also transforms warehoused data to provide customized clinical data sets to researchers across UIC and to deliver anonymized data to national clinical data networks. He has recently collaborated on informatics research with investigators at UIC, Northwestern, and the University of Chicago. This work has focused on methods to preserve patient privacy when sharing clinical data across institutions.

Prior to joining CCTS in 2017, Dr. Randolph was Principal Staff Software Engineer at Motorola Mobility, where, over a 17-year career, he worked in configuration management, database application development, and data analytics. Before Motorola, he was Staff Software Engineer at IBM, Associate Editor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and a teacher in Illinois public schools.

His other research interests include machine learning, natural language processing (NLP), music computing, and educational technology.
