I am a fourth year PhD student in the Nutrition and Health Sciences program at Emory University.

I study how wealth over the life course is associated with cognition and health (physical, mental, socio-emotional) in low- and middle-income countries. My work uses data from the COHORTS collaboration, a consortium of six birth cohorts from five LMICs.
