Nicole Talge, Ph.D. is an assistant professor in the Dept. of Epidemiology & Biostatistics at Michigan State University.   Drawing upon her doctoral training in developmental psychology and postdoctoral training in perinatal epidemiology, Nicole investigates the perinatal pathways that contribute to risk for neurodevelopmental disorders, with a focus on identifying biological or socio-demographic factors that explain heterogeneity in these associations.  The goal of these efforts is to help tailor developmental surveillance efforts and identify at-risk subgroups of children who could benefit from increased access to early interventions.
