I am a Researcher on the Food Prices for Nutrition project. In this role, I guide efforts to strengthen national capacity using data on diet costs and affordability by convening national user groups across nine priority countries with a high burden of malnutrition.
Prior to Tufts, I spent three years at the International Food Policy Research Institute. At IFPRI, I worked as a Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellow and Research Analyst, first in Lilongwe, Malawi and later in the Washington DC headquarters. I worked primarily on the collection and analysis of household and market survey data from Malawi and Papua New Guinea, with a focus on poverty and child health, dietary patterns and nutrient intakes, and food quality and safety.
