Kaiser Permanente Researcher Profiles

Stacey E. Alexeeff, PhD, is a research scientist biostatistician at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. She earned her MSc in Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University in 2009 and her PhD in Biostatistics from Harvard University in 2013. Dr. Alexeeff's methodological areas of interest include spatial models, mixed effects modeling, longitudinal analysis techniques, measurement error, and gene-environment interaction tests. Her research in environmental epidemiology has focused on the health effects of ambient air pollution exposures across cardiovascular and respiratory systems, with particular emphasis on spatial models of air pollution and measurement error properties of these prediction models. Currently, Dr. Alexeeff is involved with ongoing research projects at the Division of Research, including studies of genetic and environmental risk factors for disease, intervention studies, and diagnostic prediction modeling.

    Particulate Air Pollution, Cardiovascular Events, and Susceptibility Factors (PACES)

    This is a retrospective cohort study of 5 million adult members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California during 2000 to 2012, linked to state-of-the-art estimates of exposure to PM2.5 (particulate matter less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter) generated at 1km x 1km resolution using a novel hybrid model that incorporates meteorologic, land-use, and satellite measures. This project will quantify the associations between ambient PM2.5 exposure and risk of cardiovascular disease events, and determine whether demographic characteristics (age, sex, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status) and clinical comorbidities (obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia) are susceptibility factors that confer elevated risk to the effects of PM2.5.
