Tina Hernandez-Boussard - Associate Professor (Research) of Surgery (General Surgery), of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research Center), and of Biomedical Data Science

Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Hernandez-Boussard's background and expertise is in the field of computational biology, with concentration on accountability measures, population health, and health policy. A key focus of her research is the application of novel methods and tools to large clinical datasets for hypothesis generation, comparative effectiveness research, and the evaluation of quality healthcare delivery. The lab's 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 the Hernandez-Boussard lab to create formal, statistically rigid, evaluations of healthcare data using unique combinations of large datasets.
