Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University′s School of Medicine, a Core Faculty Member at the Center for Health Policy/Primary Care and Outcomes Research, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Stanford Center on Longevity. His research focuses on complex policy decisions in health and medicine: how to improve population health given the reality of budgetary and other resource constraints. He is keenly interested in applying a model-based, decision-analytic framework to these problems as they relate to a range of infectious and non-communicable diseases in both developed and developing countries. To do so, he constructs, calibrates, and validates computer-based models of diseases in populations that allow him to consider the health, economic, and distributional implications of alternative policies. Dr. Goldhaber-Fiebert graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1997, with an A.B. in the History and Literature of America. After working as a software engineer and consultant, he conducted a year-long public health research program in Costa Rica with his wife in 2001. Winner of the Lee B. Lusted Prize for Outstanding Student Research from the Society for Medical Decision Making in 2006, he completed his PhD in Health Policy concentrating in Decision Science at Harvard University in 2008.
