My primary goal is to improve lifelong health by optimizing nutrition during infancy and early childhood. My current projects look at the effect of high fat diet after fetal growth restriction, the concentration of iron in infant formula, and factors that predict or alter the impact of rapid weight gain during infancy. I also care deeply about how nutrition impacts other aspects of care including recovery from acute kidney injury, costs of medical care, and how climate change and nutrition intersect.
For Referring Providers:
I am interested in the joint effects of intrauterine nutritional exposures and postnatal diet on health outcomes across the life course
