Dr. Amelia Wesselink is a post-doctoral associate in epidemiology at the Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) and co-investigator of PRESTO. In June 2018, she graduated from BUSPH with a doctorate in epidemiology. Her dissertation research involved the study of environmental and psychosocial determinants of fertility, with a focus on environmental chemicals, cigarette smoking, and perceived stress. Dr. Wesselink has interests in environmental and reproductive epidemiology. Dr. Wesselink had a chief role in writing PRESTO’s new R01 investigating air pollution, fertility, and miscarriage and is actively involved in overseeing all aspects of the E-PRESTO studies in Boston and Detroit. She is also co-investigator of the Study of Environment, Lifestyle, and Fibroids (SELF), in which she is examining the role of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and gynecologic disease.
