Health Equity/Research Interest
My research interests relate to improving the implementation of nutrition interventions such that they are culturally and contextually appropriate for target beneficiaries, particularly for women and children. I am also interested in exploring approaches across food systems, including those related to the food environments and provider behaviors, to support equitable and sustainable diets among the most marginalized.
I use focused ethnographic methods, including semi-structured interviews, focus group discussions, participatory observations, free listing, pile sorting, social mapping, and photo elicitation to explore the priorities, preferences, and value tradeoffs people make related to their nutrition decisions.
