Jade Benjamin-Chung, PhD MPH, is an Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Epidemiology and Population Health. Her research applies causal inference and machine learning techniques to study interventions to control, eliminate, or eradicate environmentally-transmitted infectious diseases, including interventions to prevent malaria, diarrhea, soil-transmitted helminths, and influenza. She is a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator and a recipient of a K01 Career Development Award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to estimate spillover effects of malaria eradication interventions in southern Africa (K01AI141616). She completed her graduate training in epidemiology and biostatistics at UC Berkeley and joined Stanford in May 2021.
Our research aims to improve population health by creating high quality evidence about what health interventions work in whom and where, when, and how to implement them. Most of our research is focused on environmentally-mediated infectious diseases, including malaria, diarrhea, soil-transmitted helminths, and influenza. Our focus is on improving the health of vulnerable populations from low-resource settings, both domestically and internationally. We use a variety of epidemiologic, computational, and statistical methods, including causal inference and machine learning methods.
Effects of Household Concrete Floors on Child Health
This randomized trial in rural Bangladesh will measure whether installing concrete floors in
households with soil floors reduces child enteric infection. The trial will randomize
eligible households to receive concrete household floors or to no intervention and measure
effects on child soil-transmitted helminth infection, diarrhea, and other enteric infections.
The study will collect longitudinal follow-up measurements when children are aged 6, 12, 18,
and 24 months.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
