Research Blurb: 

My interests lay at the intersection of microbial ecology and international public health.  My research focuses on the effects of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) intertventions on the development of a 'healthy' commensal gut community for children in low- and middle-income countries that allows optimal absorption of nutrients by the host.  Particularly, I'm interested in the potential microbial dysbiosis caused by a subclinincal condition effecting the absorptive capacity and permeability of the small intestine (environmental enteropathy), understanding the root causes of the pathology, and how these effects might be mitigated through low-cost WASH interventions.
