I am a neonatologist and perinatal epidemiologist at Stanford University, with investigative work focusing on understanding and improving morbidities and neurodevelopmental outcomes for extremely premature and high-risk infants, and building programs and collaboratives to advance care and support systems for children and families through a health equity lens. My work as neurodevelopmental follow up PI with the NICHD Neonatal Research Network encompasses outcomes evaluations for high-risk infants at toddler age through school age. I am privileged to serve as medical director and PI for the statewide California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) High-
Risk Infant Follow-Up (HRIF) Program, a statewide partnership with California Children’s Services, integrating a continuum of care framework for quality improvement from NICU through early childhood. At Stanford, I direct the Fetal and Pregnancy Health Program, which has established an interdisciplinary and highly integrated approach to comprehensive care for complex fetal patients, expectant mothers, and families. I enjoy cooking, hiking, and traveling to learn.

Susan also serves as a co-leader of the Life Course Translational Research Network (LCT-RN)'s Prematurity Node.
