    Sajjad Fouladvand, PhD, MSc

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Biomedical Informatics

    BioSajjad Fouladvand, PhD, MSc is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research. Dr. Fouladvand's research career thus far has been focused on developing and applying artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to solve real-world healthcare problems. Prior to Stanford, he worked at the Institute for Biomedical Informatics at the University of Kentucky (UK) while completing his PhD in Computer Science. During this time, he also received training at Mayo Clinic’s Department of Artificial Intelligence and Informatics as an intern.

    While at UK as a PhD candidate, he developed a deep learning model based on transformer and Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) models to analyze multi-stream healthcare data for prediction of opioid use disorder (OUD). While at Mayo Clinic as an intern, he created a LSTM based framework to predict progression from cognitively unimpaired to mild cognitive impairment in an aging population. In his new role at Stanford, Dr. Fouladvand is involved in conducting AI and healthcare data science research in close collaboration with clinicians, scientists, and healthcare systems with access to deep clinical data warehouses and broad population health data sources.

  • Behzad Naderalvojoud

    Behzad Naderalvojoud

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Biomedical Informatics

    BioBehzad Naderalvojoud is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at Hacettepe University, Turkey, in 2020. He is immersed in the fields of machine learning, deep learning, natural language understanding, and Big data analytics and works on health knowledge discovery platforms that transfer Big Health data from volume-based to value-based by generating relational knowledge leading to innovative treatments, predictive therapeutic outcomes, and early diagnosis. He was the leader of many industrial AI projects in the fields of healthcare intelligence and information management in the Eureka cluster programs.

    Dr. Naderalvojoud has published several papers in the field of natural language understanding by working on word sense disambiguation, sentiment analysis, neural word embeddings, and deep learning models through national and international projects.

    He is currently working on the funded NLM grant project "Advancing Knowledge Discovery for Postoperative Pain Management" under the supervision of Dr. Tina Hernandez-Boussard. He develops descriptive, predictive, and analytical tools using OMOP CDM for postoperative pain research to facilitate timely generation of evidence across multiple populations and settings.
