Research Interests:

My research focuses on how postnatal nutrition influences health outcomes by modifying the effect of in utero exposures. I am also interested in optimizing health care and outcomes for children with micronutrient deficiencies, in particular vitamin C.


Current Projects:

  1. Postnatal high fat diet in a mouse model of intrauterine growth restriction
  2. Interaction of maternal obesity and rapid infant weight gain on childhood obesity risk
  3. Iron content of infant formula
  4. Optimization of care for children with vitamin C deficiency
