    Dr. Hswen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Bakar Computational Health Institute at the University of California San Francisco and faculty in the joint Computational Precision Health Program with UC Berkeley. Dr. Hswen graduated with a Doctoral Degree in social and computational epidemiology at Harvard University. She is also an Associate Editor for JAMA and JAMA Network, where she leads the strategy for multimedia in AI and medicine. https://jamanetwork.com/channels/ai

    Dr. Hswen’s research has been published in top medical and public health Journals such as, The New England Journal of Medicine, The American Journal of Public Health, Preventive Medicine, Nature npj Digital Medicine, Nature Human Behavior, Nature Scientific Data, JAMA Network Open and JAMA, and her work has been featured in CBC News, Bloomberg News, Nature Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal.

    Dr. Hswen is in the pursuit of detecting uncomfortable truths and seeks to identify authentic attitudes, feelings, and beliefs that influence population behavior and health. Through the collection of unconventional and underground online social networks, Dr. Hswen captures unfiltered conversations to further understand the connections between social experiences and health. Using new artificial intelligence and machine learning methods she uncovers social patterns of disease to develop unbiased and fair systems of health.

    Dr. Hswen has served as Deputy Editor of the Harvard Public Health Review and is on the Editorial Board for Nature Journals Scientific Reports, and Humanities and Social Sciences Communications. Dr Hswen was previously a Kennedy Fellow at Harvard University and a Chateaubriand STEM Fellow, the Embassy of France, and The French National Research Agency for researchers to study the environment and health in France. Before joining UCSF, Dr. Hswen was a visiting Assistant Professor at Aix-Marseille School of Economics (AMSE) where she conducted research in behavioral economics in relation to the promotion of public health interventions. Dr. Hswen is interested in the application of behavioral economic theories to enhance the acceptance and adherence of healthy behaviors and the willingness to share information.
