About Lynne C. Messer

Lynne Messer is a social and reproductive / perinatal epidemiologist whose work focuses on developing environmental and neighborhood measures to address maternal and child health disparities. Her research interests include measurement development, social-environmental conditions, developmental programming and their collective application to women’s and children’s health disparities. Her methodological work includes better-characterizing neighborhood environments, developing socio-environmental exposure indicators for health outcomes and addressing the limits of causal inference in observational studies. She is also interested in the psychosocial mechanisms through which socio-environmental exposures result in health disparities for women and children.
