Nicole Talge is a developmental psychologist and perinatal epidemiologist. Using approaches from both disciplines, her research program investigates perinatal pathways that contribute to the development of childhood cognitive and behavioral problems. This etiologic focus is motivated by a desire to identify biomarkers that lead to the development of targeted surveillance and intervention efforts that promote optimal functioning in children exposed to perinatal health risks. To date, her research has characterized links between perinatal health and neurodevelopmental outcomes, including whether markers of physiologic pathways or socio-demographic risk explain heterogeneity in these associations.
