Postdoctoral Research Fellow, General Surgery
Bio The key focus of my current research at Stanford is the application of data mining tool on Electronic Health Record System for improving quality of health care. My primary research area is health economics with research focused on quality of care, patient-centered outcomes research, and efficiency/effectiveness analysis. I am particularly interested in various forms of quality, and their association with patients’ health outcomes and cost of care. My secondary research area is environmental economics with research focused on environmental/public health and green economy.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Application of Micro/Nanotechnology to Biological Systems.
Associate Professor (Research) of Surgery (General Surgery), of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research Center) and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My background and expertise is in the field of computational biology, with concentration in health services research. A key focus of my research is to apply novel methods and tools to large clinical datasets for hypothesis generation, comparative effectiveness research, and the evaluation of quality healthcare delivery. My research involves managing and manipulating big data, which range from administrative claims data to electronic health records, and applying novel biostatistical techniques to innovatively assess clinical and policy related research questions at the population level. This research enables us to create formal, statistically rigid, evaluations of healthcare data using unique combinations of large datasets.
Stefanie S. Jeffrey, MD
John and Marva Warnock Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Jeffrey led the multidisciplinary team from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Genome Technology Center that invented the MagSweeper, an automated device that immunomagnetically captures live circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from cancer patient blood for single cell analysis or culture. Her lab also works on microfluidic technologies for tumor cell capture, characterization, and growth - with the goal of defining individual patient response to newer biologically-based cancer therapies.
