Biography

I am currently a doctoral candidate in the Nutrition and Health Sciences program, Emory University

Research

My research goal is to improve the health of populations with adequate and balanced nutrition throughout life cycles and across generations, especially in low- and middle-income countries and among underserved populations populations in the U.S.  My interest in medicine, public health, and associated quantitative methods has driven me to gain diverse experiences, including working as a data analyst, a research coordinator, and an intern in different settings (UN agency, non-profit organization, research institute, and university). I performed a wide range of tasks including data analysis, local capacity building, grant proposal writing, and scientific manuscript preparation. For my doctoral work, I aim at further clarifying whether early nutrition supplementation can improve long-term health outcomes in a chronically undernourished population in Guatemala.
