Masters Student in Epidemiology and Clinical Research, admitted Autumn 2015
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Examining outcomes of operative intervention and medical management of both Stanford Type A and Type B dissection. I hope to use computational fluid dynamics in CT Angiogram to evaluate false lumen flow in the descending aorta after acute type B aortic dissection or repaired acute type A aortic dissection in order to predict aneurysmal dilatation in the chronic phase.
Professor of Medicine (General Medical Disciplines) and of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in issues relating to the representation and measurement of evidence in medical research, and determinants of the truth of medical findings, using a Bayesian framework. I also do work in evidence synthesis, comparative effectiveness research, and the ethics of clinical research.
Instructor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research investigates the pathways linking poverty and health disparities. In particular, I study the impact on health outcomes of social and economic factors using interdisciplinary causal inference methods. I am interested in the mechanisms through which adverse socioeconomic conditions get "under the skin" to cause health disparities.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Hauser is board certified in internal medicine and completed medical school, internal medicine residency and a master of public administration at Harvard. She is also a certified chef via Le Cordon Bleu. Her research interests blend her training in medicine, public policy, nutrition and culinary arts. They include: community-based participatory research (CBPR) utilizing lifestyle change interventions for those in underserved communities with, or at risk of, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity; weight loss; access to healthy foods and safe places to exercise; teaching nutrition and cooking skills to increase intake of plant-based foods; and increasing access to medical care for the underserved.

Abby C. King
Professor of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology) and of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests include the application of behavioral theory and social ecological approaches to achieve large scale changes impacting chronic disease prevention and control; expanding the reach and translation of evidence-based interventions through state-of-the-art technologies; exploring social and physical environmental influences on health; applying community participatory research perspectives to address health disparities; and policy-level approaches to health promotion/disease prevention.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am an endocrinologist & clinical investigator. My group studies disease prevention, outcomes & clinical impact of hormonal/metabolic perturbations (e.g. from environmental exposures & interactions with molecular/other factors) & clinical therapies. These interests cut across multiple complex chronic diseases, the aging process, & critical lifespan stages; we aim to use novel molecular epi, 'big' data, & new technologies for better insights to etiology & enhanced health services & delivery.
