      Melissa L. Wilson, MPH, PhD, is Visiting Assistant Professor of Research in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Southern California. She received her Bachelor's degree in Biology from the University of Pittsburgh, her MPH degree in Epidemiology from the University of California at Los Angeles, and her Ph.D. in Epidemiology from the University of Southern California (USC) in 2004.

      After completing her postdoctoral research at USC, she joined the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at USC in 2006. Dr. Wilson's research interests include the molecular epidemiology of preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome, the genetics of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, subsequent effects of in utero exposure to nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, the effects of air pollution on obstetric outcomes and post-partum depression.
