Update: I recently moved to Thailand and will be working here for a while. Drop me a line if you're in the Bangkok area.
I am a nutritional epidemiologist with experience working with research groups in low- and middle-income countries in Asia and Africa to collect and analyze population data on diet and nutrition status; characterize contributions of diet to nutrient adequacy, communicable and noncommunicable diseases, and exposure to environmental agents; and design and evaluate evidence-based strategies for improving public health. I received a BA in Chemistry from New York University in 2011, MPH in Epidemiology/International Health from the University of Michigan in 2013, Doctor of Science in Nutrition from Harvard University in 2018, and postdoctoral training at Harvard from 2018 to 2021. My doctoral training was funded by a National Research Service Award from the U.S. National Institutes of Health. I am currently an NIH Fogarty Global Health Fellow at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
Current research interests:
Development and application of methods for assessing population diet, diet quality, and nutrition status in low- and middle-income countries.
Development of innovative platforms for population-based nutrition research and surveillance, and multidimensional food systems measurement.
Integration of scientific evidence and food culture to improve public nutrition knowledge and develop healthy, sustainable, and acceptable diet patterns.
