Dr. Ya-Hui Yu is an assistant professor of epidemiology in the Department of Population Health Sciences at Georgia State University’s School of Public Health. Her research interests include understanding the impacts of maternal metabolic abnormalities and pregnancy complications on the health of mothers and offspring, as well as drug safety evaluation for the use during pregnancy. Another aspect of her research has focused on leveraging innovative methodologies and study designs to improve causal inference in observational studies using large administrative/clinical databases.
Prior to joining Georgia State University, she completed her postdoctoral training at McGill University and was also a trainee in the Drug Safety and Effectiveness Cross-Disciplinary Training Program (DSECT) sponsored by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. She received her Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of Pittsburgh and her MS in epidemiology from National Taiwan University.
