Rebecca M. Gardner
Ph.D. Student in Epidemiology and Clinical Research, admitted Autumn 2022
BioI'm a first year PhD student in Epidemiology & Clinical Research with an emphasis on maternal health and well-being. I am interested in using novel causal methods to identify risk factors for prenatal and postpartum depression and anxiety; and performing meta-analyses to identify the most effective treatments for postpartum mental illness. Ultimately, I would like to design and implement interventions to reduce disease burden. I am also interested in studying the connection between adverse pregnancy outcomes and cardiovascular disease.
Before starting a PhD, I was a biostatistician in the Quantitative Sciences Unit at Stanford for four years where I co-authored over twenty publications, collaborating with clinicians on various domains including developmental behavioral pediatrics, reproductive endocrinology & infertility, oncology, and clinical trials. I completed my MS in Statistics at Brigham Young University in 2016, where I collaborated with cardiologists to develop a new approach to diagnose rheumatic heart disease in pediatric patients in Samoa for my Master's thesis.
In my free time, I moderate a local book club, teach little kids how to read, and spend time with my husband and our two young children.

Affiliate, Epidemiology and Population Health
BioDr. Gladish received her PhD in Medical Genetics from the University of British Columbia investigating how early life adversity impacted DNA methylation changes over the life course. At Stanford she is a postdoctoral fellow researching social adversity and impacts on health disparities combining epigenetic, genetic and epidemiological data to obtain a better understanding of how negative health outcomes develop and improve ways to identify vulnerable populations for more effective interventions.
Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health and of Medicine (Primary Care and Population Health)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in issues relating to the representation and measurement of evidence in medical research, and determinants of the truth of medical findings, using a Bayesian framework. I also do work in evidence synthesis, comparative effectiveness research, and the ethics of clinical research.
