Ivana Maric is an assistant professor in the Pediatrics Department at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Her research focuses on applying machine learning to improving maternal and neonatal health. Her main focus has been on developing machine learning models for early prediction of adverse outcomes of pregnancy from omics and electronic health records data, that could guide development of low-cost, point-of-care diagnostic tools. Her main interest is in solutions that are applicable worldwide and especially in low-resource settings. Previously, her research focused on information theory, a mathematical discipline tightly related to statistics and machine learning. She is a recipient of the 2021 Rosenkranz Prize awarded for innovative work to improve health in low- or middle-income countries. She is also a co-recipient of the 2013 IEEE Communications Society Best Tutorial Paper Award.

She received her BS degree from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, her MS and PhD at Rutgers University, and postdoctoral training at Stanford University. She served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Communications Letters from 2009 to 2012 and for the Trans. on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies from 2016 to 2018.
