My research aims to understand how household and family contexts affect child health and well-being in poor populations.To date I have used large secondary datasets to answer key research questions about household/family determinants of child health and nutrition (including obesity) in the Philippines, Costa Rica, Mexico, and among poor children in the U.S. I have also been studying household food insecurity in U.S. and developing country contexts. As a member of the FIC, I will continue to pursue interdisciplinary research on the social determinants of food insecurity and nutritional outcome among vulnerable children across settings; and, I will begin to use on the ground research to inform food security and child nutrition policies and programs.
