Dr. Wiley develops methods for using data from electronic health records for precision medicine discovery and implementation. She is a principal investigator in the Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine and an Assistant Professor in the Division of Biomedical Informatics and Personalized Medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

She completed undergraduate degrees in chemistry and molecular biology at the University of Denver followed by a Masters in biomedical informatics (2010) and a PhD in human genetics at Vanderbilt University (2016). Her published work involves developing computational phenotyping algorithms for use in EHR-linked biobanks and investigating new algorithms for precision dosing of warfarin in African Americans. Her current work focuses on clinical evidence generation from electronic health records and informatics implementation, serving as the lead informatician on an NIH Cancer Moonshot-funded project to create a comprehensive tobacco cessation service at the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

Dr. Wiley is actively involved in the informatics community, currently serving on the editorial board of the Journal of Biomedical Informatics. She has served as Vice-Chair of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 2019 Annual Symposium, Chair of AMIA Working Group Steering Committee, and an ex officio member of the AMIA Board of Directors. Further she has co-developed the Coursera Clinical Data Science Specialization - a series of six MOOCs designed to teach clinical research informatics skills.
