Jeremy A. Rassen, ScD, is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of Computational Pharmacoepidemiology in the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In 2008, he completed a doctoral program at the Harvard School of Public Health, in which his thesis work centered on methods development and applications of instrumental variables (IV) in pharmacoepidemiology. He also has an extensive background in computer science, large database systems, and systems performance.

Dr. Rassen’s current research seeks to extend his IV work into specific disease areas, and to continue work on epidemiology-specific extensions to IVs. He also examines questions involving the use of computer science techniques in epidemiology, with particular focus on database integration, preservation of privacy, and epidemiolgic analyses that span cohorts and databases.

He graduated cum laude in computer science from Harvard College in 1995, after which he worked for ten years in Silicon Valley. He received a master’s degree in epidemiology from Harvard School of Public Health in 2006, and a doctorate in 2008. His master’s program was supported by the Winokur Fellowship.
