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. Her research has focused on early life origins of child health and disease, for the most part concentrating on prenatal exposure to maternal medications. In the course of these explorations, Dr. Greene has had access to large administrative databases and cohorts, thus learning first-hand how to manage and optimize big datasets.
