K.S. Joseph

K.S. Joseph, a Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the School of Population and Public Health, received the 2014 Mentoring Award from the Society for Pediatric and Perinatal Epidemiologic Research.

The award recognizes the importance of dedicated and skilled mentors in the development of reproductive, pediatric, and perinatal epidemiologists at all levels.

Dr. Joseph was recognized as an exceptional mentor to masters, doctoral, and postdoctoral students, junior faculty, and clinical fellows. Through his own research excellence, he is a role model for his students to adopt a similar work ethic and attitude towards success and the occasional failure. He relentlessly encourages students to be confident in their abilities to conduct excellent research, to effectively present the results, and to become independent thinking professionals.

Dr. Joseph’s research interests include pregnancy complications, birth, fetal growth and infant mortality and serious neonatal morbidity. In 2012, he was awarded a Chair in Maternal, Fetal and Infant Health Services Research by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
