Dr. Romano's research explores the influence of exposure to environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) during the sensitive windows of pregnancy and gestation on pregnancy complications, maternal and infant hormones, breastfeeding, infant feeding behaviors, and early life growth. Her research is primarily focused on the effects of EDCs commonly found in consumer products in the United States, including bisphenol A, phthalates, perfluoroalkyl substances, parabens, and flame retardants. Dr. Romano also works with local and regional stakeholders to address community concerns related to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance contamination in New England.
