Farnam Mohebi

Job title: 
Data Science Fellow
Haas School of Business

I am a PhD student at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, and a researcher in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, San Francisco, having previously earned my MD and MPH degrees. My research focuses on the intersection of professionals and emerging technologies, drawing from the fields of medical sociology, organizational theory, and science and technology studies. I am particularly fascinated by the evolving relationship between physicians and artificial intelligence, the phenomenon of physician influencers, and the social construction of medical AI science. My work is enriched by my background in medicine and public health, as well as my ongoing studies in medical and organizational sociology. Moreover, I am developing into a full-cycle researcher, motivated by a dedication to gaining a profound understanding of organizational practices through qualitative methods and subsequently gaining further insights and testing them using quantitative methods--which I believe is essential for generating the knowledge required to drive meaningful change.
