Hi, I'm Adam Rule

I am a postdoctoral scholar with the Casey Eye Institute at Oregon Health and Science University where I study the design and use of electronic health records. I recieved my PhD in Cognitive Science from UC San Diego where I worked with the Design Lab to study how academic researchers use Jupyter Notebooks to track and share their work.

I study and develop technologies that help people document and share data-driven work. I get particularly excited about electronic health records, interruptions, information visualization, and computational notebooks. You can reach me at rulea@ohsu.edu.
