    Paul A. Khavari, MD, PhD

    Carl J. Herzog Professor of Dermatology in the School of Medicine

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe work in epithelial tissue as a model system to study stem cell biology, cancer and new molecular therapeutics. Epithelia cover external and internal body surfaces and undergo constant self-renewal while responding to diverse environmental stimuli. Epithelial homeostasis precisely balances stem cell-sustained proliferation and differentiation-associated cell death, a balance which is lost in many human diseases, including cancer, 90% of which arise in epithelial tissues.

    BioJames grew up in Oxford in the United Kingdom. He graduated from Cardiff University School of Medicine with honours in 2017, and has a BSc in Medical Education. Following graduation, he completed two years as a clinical academic in Dermatology at the University of Oxford, conducting research investigating patient-reported outcome measures and quality of life in patients with Graft-versus-Host-Disease following allogenic stem cell transplant. He subsequently completed a two year precision medicine fellowship at the Stanford University Department of Dermatology, focusing on cutaneous oncology and hidradenitis suppurativa. He has also extensively published in medical education, and co-founded a novel peer reviewed medical journal targeted at encouraging medical students to publish and peer review. He is currently completing his residency in Dermatology at Stanford.

  • Jiyeong Kim

    Jiyeong Kim

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Dermatology

    BioDr. Jiyeong Kim is a post-doctoral scholar at the Stanford Center for Digital Health and the Department of Dermatology School of Medicine. Dr. Kim is a computational epidemiologist, harnessing patient-and caregiver-generated health information and data to design patient-centered health interventions, which could be tailored to each patient group for improving patient engagement and better health outcomes.

    In her work, Dr. Kim uses artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing to understand patients' and caregivers' genuine voices of care needs and needed support. As a multidisciplinary epidemiologist, Dr. Kim's work focuses on translational health data science, embracing the intersection of mental health and digital health and expanding to patient-provider communications and health disparities among cancer survivors and caregivers of individuals with chronic conditions (e.g., Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia).

    Research Interest
    -LLMs and generative AI to Listen to the Patient
    -Generative AI-Assisted Enhanced Patient Care
    -ML-based Disease Prediction Modeling
    -Digital Mental Health Tools
    -Patient-Generated Data and Precision Health
