Dr. Ami Zota is a postdoctoral fellow in the Program on Reproductive Health and Environment at the University of California, San Francisco. She uses her expertise in epidemiology, exposure assessment, and environmental justice to investigate the cumulative impacts of environmental and social factors on reproductive health. Her current work focuses on effects of environmental chemicals exposure (such as PBDE flame retardants, PCBs, and PFOAs) on thyroid function, cardiovascular function, and birth outcomes in an ethnically and socioeconomically diverse population of pregnant women.
