Description

My research interests include the role of early life experiences, feeding practices, and nutrition on the occurrence of tooth decay among young children in low-resource settings. As Director of the School of Dentistry's Program in Global Oral Health, I oversee our fellowship program for dental students and residents who wish to engage in global health research and offer two introductory elective courses in global health with a focus on oral diseases.
