Larissa Huber, Ph.D., studied anthropology and mathematics as an undergraduate. Her interests in both of these fields led her to pursue graduate degrees in Epidemiology. She completed a Master of Science in Epidemiology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Doctorate n Epidemiology at Emory University. Huber's research interests focus on reproductive epidemiology. She is particularly interested in how behaviors, such as choice of contraceptive methods, weight gain and prenatal exposures, affect women’s health. She has secured nearly $600,000 as the principal investigator of grants awarded by the NIH, HRSA, the American College of Epidemiology and the North Carolina General Assembly to conduct research on women's health.
