    Selen Bozkurt

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Biomedical Data Sciences

    Bio Selen Bozkurt is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University, Biomedical Data Science Department and Center for Biomedical Informatics Research. Her research area and interests have focused on health informatics research using electronic health records, machine learning and natural language processing. She also has work experience as a biostatistician in several projects. She is a member of RSNA Radiology Reporting Committee since 2009. Her PhD dissertation work was entitled "A Real Time Decision Support System for Mammography Interpretations" in which she developed an automated system for deep information extraction from mammography reports and an approach for real-time decision support driven by analysis of dictated radiology reports.

    Bio I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University’s Division of Primary Care and Population Health. My research is at the intersection of public policy and economics. I am interested socio-economic determinants of health and the impact of disease on economic functioning of households, particularly intergenerational transfers of human capital. I am also interested in the impact of development assistance for health on population health outcomes and spillover effects to other sectors, including labor, education, and diplomacy. I have experience with primary data collection in sub-Saharan Africa and with leveraging secondary data sources to explore research questions.

    I hold a PhD in health policy (economics track) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the mentorship of Harsha Thirumurthy. My dissertation evaluated the impact of US-sponsored malaria and HIV interventions in sub-Saharan Africa on child mortality, economic functioning of households, and intergenerational transfers of human capital. As a doctoral student, I collaborated with UCSF researchers on the SEARCH trial, a community-randomized experiment of HIV 'test and treat' in Uganda and Kenya. My contribution was to evaluate economic functioning of households participating in the trial, including labor activities, schooling outcomes, out-of-pocket and opportunity costs of seeking healthcare, and subjective expectations of health and longevity. My collaboration with the SEARCH group is ongoing. In a separate project, I also explored data related to price premiums paid to female sex workers for unprotected sex in a high HIV prevalence setting in Kenya.

    Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a BA degree in psychology from Boston University and an MPH degree from Columbia University in health policy. I then worked at ICAP at Columbia University, under the mentorship of Margaret Kruk, investigating the impact of HIV program scale-up in sub-Saharan Africa on the volume and quality of prenatal and obstetric care.

    Aashish Jha

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Biomedical Data Sciences

    Bio I am interested in using genetic diversity to understand human demographic and evolutionary processes in human populations. In the past, I have worked in immunology, virology, and my PhD dissertation was in using experimentally evolved Drosophila melanogaster to understand genetic basis of complex traits.
