    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am a reproductive, perinatal, and pediatric epidemiologist with interests in social and molecular determinants, quantitative causal inference, and quantitative biostatistical and bioinformatic methods. My current research involves three separate but interrelated domains: environmental determinants of maternal and child outcome disparities; placental epigenomics and transcriptomics; and the role of paternal and family contributions in maternal and child health.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
