Ellen Caniglia, ScD

Assistant Professor of Epidemiology

Dr. Caniglia is a perinatal and HIV epidemiologist who works to improve health outcomes among pregnant people and their children, and among people with HIV. She uses methods for causal inference, including dynamic treatment strategies and the target trial framework, to identify optimal treatment and prevention strategies in these populations. Her current work is funded by a K01 award from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to estimate the effects of micronutrient supplementation strategies during pregnancy on adverse birth outcomes, to identify barriers and facilitators to supplementation, and to pilot an intervention to provide supplementation to high-risk groups at antenatal clinics in Botswana. Dr. Caniglia collaborates broadly on projects related to causal inference; HIV; and reproductive, perinatal, and pediatric epidemiology. She is passionate about teaching the next generation of epidemiologists.
