Summary

I am an investigator and assistant professor of Epidemiology in the Departments of Pediatrics, Population Health, and Environmental Medicine.

My research interests center on identifying environmental exposures that contribute to the etiology of developmental disabilities in childhood. I am currently focused on characterizing environmental exposures, using biomarkers in both pregnant women and children.

Prior to joining NYU School of Medicine, I was an Intramural Research Training Award fellow at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

I obtained my medical degree from Tehran University of Medical Sciences, and I completed a Master’s and a PhD in epidemiology at Erasmus University in Rotterdam, Netherlands. During my doctoral and postdoctoral training, I was actively involved in birth cohort studies in Europe and in the United States, including the Generation R Study and the Upstate KIDS study. I was also a collaborator in a European epidemiological consortium examining the effects of nutrition (NUTRIMENTHE) and air pollution (the European Study of Cohorts for Air Pollution Effects, or ESCAPE) on children’s neurodevelopment.

I received the Rubicon Award from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research in 2014 for a project on the brain basis of autism.
