Stephanie A. Leonard
Assistant Professor (Research) of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Dunlevie Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center for Discovery, Innovation and Clinical Impact)
BioI am an Assistant Professor in the Dunlevie Maternal-Fetal Medicine Center (https://dunleviemfm.stanford.edu/) and am a faculty member of the California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC https://www.cmqcc.org/) and the Maternal and Child Health Research Institute. The overall goal of my research is to advance equitable, positive health experiences and outcomes for pregnant individuals. I'm particularly interested in applying transdisciplinary, state-of-the-art methods to perinatal health research, with a focus on pregnancy-related morbidities. I trained in epidemiology at UCLA and UC Berkeley, where my research focused on nutrition in pregnancy and was completed in partnership with the WIC program and the Nutrition Policy Institute. Since joining Stanford, my research has focused on severe pregnancy-related complications, which has been in close partnership with CMQCC, a statewide quality improvement organization. I completed my postdoc in Neonatology as part of the Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences. In 2019, I joined the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology as an Instructor and Senior Biostatistician and in 2022 started as an Assistant Professor in the department. I have obtained independent funding for my research from the Eunice K. Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Development (F32 postdoctoral award), MCHRI (postdoc award and structural disparities program award), Spectrum (pilot grant), WIC, and the March of Dimes. I have also collaborated on multiple obstetrical studies, including qualitative studies, clinical trials, and prospective and retrospective observational studies.
