Mulubrhan Mogos, PhD, MSc.

  • Assistant Professor

The long-term goal of my research program is to reduce adverse fetal-maternal birth outcomes and eliminate health disparity in birth outcomes. I primarily focus on studying the impact of maternal conditions before and during pregnancy on birth outcomes as well as healthcare cost. To this end, currently I am investigating the role of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) on fetal-maternal outcomes and the association between timing of delivery (gestation at the time of delivery) in pregnancies complicated by HDP and fetal-maternal outcomes.
