Alexandria Jensen, Ph.D.

Senior Biostatistician

Alex joined the QSU in October 2022. She received her Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the University of Colorado – Anschutz Medical Campus. Her graduate work focused on applications of graph theory and kernel machine methods to neuroimaging data. In addition, she participated in projects ranging from the creation of pre-processing pipelines for brain MRI to using large administrative databases to study health disparities and outcomes. Alex has also built several Shiny apps and R packages.

Clinical Areas of Interest: diagnostic and interventional radiology, neurology, maternal fetal medicine


Methodological Areas of Interest: medical image analysis, graph theory/network analysis, health services research and the use of administrative databases
