Dr. Ananth’s research interests fall under three broad areas: perinatal and reproductive epidemiology; molecular approaches to studying obstetrical complications and adverse perinatal outcomes; and development and applications of innovative statistical approaches to studies in human reproduction. Much of his recent work in perinatal epidemiology has focused on ischemic placental disease (preeclampsia, fetal growth restriction and placental abruption) and preterm delivery. Dr. Ananth has published over 45 research articles on placental abruption, exploring its etiology and its effects on outcomes of pregnancy. In the area of statistical methods, his recent interests include bivariate logistic regression models, and regression models for the analysis of correlated binary and ordinal responses. An impassioned teacher, Dr. Ananth teaches “Principles of Epidemiology and Biostatistics” to residents and fellows in obstetrics and gynecology at Columbia University. Dr. Ananth is also a very prolific writer. Since 1996, he has published over 400 research papers in leading scientific peer-reviewed journals, has authored over 20 book chapters, and has presented his research at over 200 scientific conferences.
In 2010, Dr. Ananth is a fellow of the American College of Epidemiology. He has received several prestigious awards, including the “2001 Outstanding Young Professional Award” conferred by the national coalition for excellence in Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology and 13 national health organizations. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology—the only specialty journal that caters to the fields of pediatric and perinatal epidemiology. In addition, he also serves as the chief statistical editor of the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
