    Research Interests

    Youssef Oulhote’s research interests focus on the effects of exposure to environmental contaminants on children’s mental health. He is specifically working on establishing possible links between exposure to various environmental contaminants (pesticides, metals, bisphenol A…) and the prevalence of nervous system-related disorders in children using biostatistical and epidemiological methods.
