Personal Statement

Personal Statement

My primary research goal is to develop and implement community-based interventions to improve the health outcomes of children from vulnerable families, especially the programs and strategies to enhance food security, form healthy dietary behaviors and prevent dual burden of malnutrition.  Nationally, my research focuses on children from underrepresented groups living with kinship caregivers. Globally, my research focuses on ethnic minorities and children from migrant worker families. I investigate the impact of global migration on the well-being of children living in impoverished mountain regions in South Asia. I have worked on research and consultant projects in India, China, Pakistan and Afghanistan.  Working with partners around the global enables me to conduct the policy and programs comparison, bring the global experience to the local community, and advance social justice at both community and global arena.
