Her training is in infectious disease epidemiology and her research interests are in pediatric enteric disease in low-resource settings. Specifically, she focuses on the complex interactions between early childhood diarrhea, enteric infections, environmental enteropathy, antibiotic use, and their effects on child health and development. She is also interested in better understanding the impact of vaccines and other interventions for enteric diseases. The majority of her fieldwork has been based in India, South Africa, and Tanzania, and she collaborates with investigators around the world. She is also interested in the application of novel causal inference-based methods to generate epidemiologic evidence that is relevant to public health interventions and policy.
