  • Aleksandra Jakubowski

    Aleksandra Jakubowski

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, General Internal Medicine

    Bio I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford's Center for Population Health Sciences. My research uses economic theory and econometric techniques to explore health policy questions. I am interested in the impact of development assistance for health on population health outcomes and spillover effects to other sectors, including labor, education, and diplomacy. I am also interested in the impact of disease and exposure to pollution on human capital accumulation, including health, cognitive development, and education outcomes.

    I received a PhD in health policy, economics track, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the mentorship of Harsha Thirumurthy. My dissertation evaluated the impact of US-sponsored malaria and HIV interventions in sub-Saharan Africa on child mortality, economic functioning of households, and intergenerational transfers of human capital. As a doctoral student, I collaborated with UCSF researchers on the SEARCH trial, a community-randomized experiment of HIV test-and-treat in Uganda and Kenya. My contribution was to evaluate economic functioning of households participating in the trial, including labor activities, schooling outcomes, out-of-pocket and opportunity costs of seeking healthcare, and subjective expectations of health and longevity. In a separate project, I also explored data related to price premiums paid to female sex workers for unprotected sex in a high HIV prevalence setting in Kenya. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received a BA degree in psychology from Boston University and an MPH degree from Columbia University in health policy. I then worked at ICAP at Columbia University, under the mentorship of Margaret Kruk, investigating the impact of HIV program scale-up in sub-Saharan Africa on the volume and quality of prenatal and obstetric care.
