I am interested in human development under diverse conditions. My primary field site is Ethiopia, where since 2007 I have conducted a longitudinal study of child development in Jimma. My work in Ethiopia has also involved collaboration with Emory University's Center for Global Safe Water , and the Maternal and Neonatal Health in Ethiopia Partnership. I am currently planning new research in Congo Brazzaville with the Hunter Gatherer Resilience project.
