Publications & Research

Dr. Wylie’s research focuses upon global maternal-fetal health with an emphasis on infections and exposures in that can adversely impact the placenta and therefore fetal growth and well being. More specifically, her two primary interests are malaria and pregnancy and, more recently, exposure to pollutants from biomass cook smoke during pregnancy. She received an Award of Research Excellence at the 2009 Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine Annual Meeting for work she presented entitled, “Impact of biomass cook smoke exposure on birth weight in Jharkhand, India.” She collaborates with researchers at the Harvard School of Public health, Boston University’s Center for Global Health and Development, The Blantyre Malaria Project, Columbia University, and the Kintampo Health Research Center in Ghana. She is currently involved in projects in India, Malawi, Tanzania and Ghana.
