Aryeh  Stein


Faculty, Global Health

Jointly Appointed, Epidemiology

ARYEH STEIN, MPH, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Hubert Department of Global Health of the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, with a joint appointment in the Department of Epidemiology. Dr. Stein obtained his B.Sc. in nutrition from the University of London (England), and his MPH and Ph.D. degrees, both in epidemiology, from Columbia University in New York City, NY. He has published over 230 peer-reviewed papers. In his research he studies critical periods of susceptibility (e.g., gestation, childhood, adulthood) to nutritional deficits and surfeits in relation to the development of adult health and human capital. He has secondary interests in the methodologies of dietary assessment and program evaluation. He is currently working with investigators from INCAP and elsewhere to examine the long-term consequences for human capital and cardiometabolic disease of exposure to a nutrition supplementation program targeted at pregnant and lactating women and young children in Guatemala; and with the COHORTS investigative team on the analysis of data from birth cohort studies in Brazil, Guatemala, India, Philippines and South Africa. In the recent past he worked with CARE and Save the Children in the design and implementation of integrated nutrition and early child care and development programs in India and El Salvador; with the Young Lives investigative team on the analysis of data from cohort studies of children in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Viet Nam; and with investigators from South Africa on the extension of the Birth to Twenty cohort to the next generation.
