Research activities

Dr. Siega-Riz, a nutritional epidemiologist, uses a multidisciplinary team perspective as a way to address complex problems such as prematurity, fetal programming, racial disparities and obesity. She has been involved in several large cohort studies involving pregnant women, children and Hispanics as well as one multi-centered intervention study for preventing type 2 diabetes in middle school children. She is interested in using cutting edge methodology to assess dietary intake for the purpose of examining the relationship between maternal diet and birth outcomes as well as prenatal determinants of childhood obesity. Her work also involves the determinants and consequences of gestational weight gain as well as the influence of maternal obesity on short-and long-term maternal and child health outcomes.
