Major Professor: Dr. Kathryn Dewey
Before coming to UC Davis I received a B.S. degree in Biology from Brandeis University. My research interest is in the area of Nutrition in developing countries. My current research project is examining early lactation success in the Gambia. We will be looking for risk factors associated with the early cessation of breastfeeding in first-time mothers. Data collected in the Gambia will eventually be compared to data collected in Peru and California to allow for a cross-cultural comparison of delivery and breastfeeding practices.
