Solis Winters is a PhD student in Health Policy, with a specialization in Population Health and Data Science, at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health. Her research focuses on improving health and nutrition during the first 1000 days of life, from pregnancy through age two. She is especially interested in using methods from causal inference to better understand what types of community-based interventions can improve birth outcomes and child malnutrition in low-income communities. Prior to starting her PhD, she worked at the Inter-American Development Bank, where she researched mechanisms for improving maternal and child health in low-income and indigenous communities in Latin America. Solis holds a B.S. in Biostatistics and Public Health from Saint Louis University’s College for Public Health and Social Justice.
