Dr. Amelia Wesselink is a Research Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH). Her research focuses on how environmental exposures influence reproductive and gynecologic health, with a specific focus on factors related to neighborhoods and climate change. She is a co-investigator of Pregnancy Study Online (PRESTO), a preconception cohort study designed to examine risk factors for sub-fertility and miscarriage. Her research in PRESTO primarily focuses on air pollution, heat, and endocrine disrupting chemical exposures in relation to reproductive health. She is PI of a BUSPH-funded pilot study involving monitoring of personal heat exposures in PRESTO. She is also a co-investigator of the Study of Environment, Lifestyle and Fibroids (SELF), where she is investigating the effect of exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals on risk of uterine fibroids.
