Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Nandita Perumal’s research program aims to improve maternal and child health, nutrition, and neurodevelopmental outcomes in vulnerable populations by investigating the causes and consequences of adverse exposures during pregnancy for health and development throughout the life course. She holds an MPH and a PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Toronto, a BSc in Human Nutrition from McGill University, and completed her postdoctoral research in the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. Dr. Perumal teaches courses on reproductive and perinatal epidemiology and advanced methodological theory in epidemiology.

Currently recruiting Masters (MSc and MPH) and PhD students interested in perinatal and pediatric epidemiology, nutrition, or global health.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
