Welcome Siqi Gan!

Welcome Siqi Gan to UCSF Division of Geriatrics! Siqi started on Monday, Jan 6th at NCIRE as Senior Statistician and will be working with multiple PIs within our Division.  Some of you might already know Siqi (if you were hired before 2016).  Yes, she’s back on the team and we are thrilled to have her back!  Siqi earned her Master of Public Health in Epidemiology from UCLA and has two Bachelor’s degrees in Pharmacy and Economics from Peking University.  Before returning to NCIRE, Siqi worked at the Philips Research China, Clinical Solution in Shanghai, China as a Senior Scientist in Data Analytics for Population Health.  While there, she built key datasets and risk models to predict healthcare events with statistical and machine learning methods using Python and R.  She also conducted the data analyses and managed the research outcome in the form of IP and internal technical reports.  Prior to that, Siqi was a Statistician at NCIRE where she worked with multiple PIs within and outside our Division where she participated in data management and statistical analysis for healthcare studies, resulted in several publications (including several publications where she is co-author).  Before NCIRE, Siqi also worked at Kaiser Permanente as a SAS/Analytical Programmer where she built and maintained key data files for data analysis using electronic health data from a wide variety of sources across platforms, including Oracle and Teradata using SAS and SQL.  Last by not least, Siqi has experience working at UCSF, in the Institute for Health Policy Studies as a Statistical Analyst Intern.  She is no stranger to some of us and will be re-joining an elite team of Senior Statisticians to work with a group of innovative health outcomes researchers who are focused on the important work of improving health for older persons.  Siqi will be primarily stationed at the VA (in the Statisticians’ Office Room 210) and can be reached via email [email protected] if you need to get a hold of her.  If you see her, welcome her back to the team!
