Bio

Emily currently works on the forefront of nutrition-sensitive agriculture intervention, UPAVAN (Upscaling Participatory Actions and Videos the Agriculture and Nutrition). UPAVAN is a four-arm cluster randomised controlled trial that compares three variants of nutrition-sensitive agriculture extension intervention aiming to improve agriculture and child and maternal nutrition outcomes in rural Odisha, India. In addition to supporting the trial’s impact evaluation, her research will explore how intersecting inequalities affect processes to impact and nutrition outcomes of the interventions. Her other research is on the individual-level double burden of malnutrition (DBM) in India. This research explores the co-existence of both under- and over-nutrition occurring simultaneously, such as micronutrient deficiencies and overweight or high blood glucose and underweight, and the different presentation of the individual-level DBM across groups and geographic location.
