overview Amar Dhand is a neurologist and network scientist. He is currently Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School with a joint appointment at the Network Science Institute at Northeastern University. Dr. Dhand's research is focused on human networks and health outcomes. His early studies uncovered the implicit patterns of peer learning interactions among heroin users in New Delhi. He then developed the 'social connectome' approach, a technique to map the social relationship structures around patients. His team uses this approach to examine social network effects on stroke outcomes such as early arrival to the hospital and patient-reported recovery. The approach is being applied to other illnesses such as multiple sclerosis. Finally, he is working with network scientists to understand how patients move through the health system, and the effects of these health trajectories on outcomes at a population level.
