Dr. Greene developed a passion for Epidemiology while earning her Masters of Public Health at UCLA. After spending the first 20 years of professional life as a high-risk obstetrics and gynecology research sonographer, she found that the discipline of Epidemiology would allow her to begin answering some of the many challenging questions that had arisen in her chosen field of maternal and child health –a nd to finally have the analytic tools needed to search for the answers in valid and reproducible ways.

Alexandra M. Binder

My research has focused on the potential of epigenetic epidemiology to elucidate the pathway by which adult disease susceptibility is influenced by environmental stimuli during critical periods of plasticity in fetal development. To explore multiple facets of this regulatory network, I have worked to develop expertise in the preprocessing and analysis of sequencing and microarray approaches to interrogate genetic variation, chromatin modifications, mRNA expression, and DNA methylation. In association with the post-doctoral molecular biologists in Dr.
