Dr. Mahalingaiah is an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology with a clinical subspecialty in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Boston University School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center. She is currently funded on the Reproductive Scientist Training Program, RSDP K12, and was previously a Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health Scholar to study environmental exposures and risk of gynecologic disease incidence. Her current research focuses on environmental exposure and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) incidence, severity, metabolic sequelae, and risk modification. As of 2018, she was noted for her study in the journal Human Reproduction that found air pollution is tied to irregular menstrual cycles in teens. This study is the first to show that exposure to air pollution among teen girls (ages 14-18) is associated with slightly increased chances of menstrual irregularity and longer time to achieve regularity in the teen years.
