Hanieh Razzaghi, MPH
Assistant Director, PEDSnet Data Coordinating Center
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Hanieh Razzaghi is currently the Assistant Director of the PEDSnet Data Coordinating Center (DCC) at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. PEDSnet is a multi-institute pediatric learning health network that standardizes clinical data to the OMOP CDM. In her current role, she oversees programmatic and scientific operations related to data quality, query fulfillment, and data integration. Her research interests are in developing metadata standards that describe data quality, provenance, and dataset construction in large-scale research networks. She also is working on developing methods to efficiently translate scientific inquiry into data variables that can be consumed by databases. Prior to PEDSnet, Hanieh worked in both academic and healthcare settings conducting epidemiological research and implementing learnings to health systems. Hanieh has a Masters in Public Health (MPH) from Yale University where she focused her studies in epidemiology. She is currently enrolled as a student at Drexel University, where she is pursuing a doctorate in Information Studies. She hopes to focus her research and work on data semantics, metadata standards and reasoning, and data quality development.
