By training she is an environmental epidemiologist, with experience in community-based research on topics including indoor household air pollution generated from cooking with solid fuels. She has analyzed the health effects of household air pollution on globally important outcomes such as birth weight, infant pneumonia, and blood pressure in adults, and has worked on efforts to quantify the health and gender impacts of transitions to clean cooking. Prior to joining Berkeley Air she served as a Health Scientist (Contractor) in the Division of International Epidemiology and Population Studies at the Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), where she managed the Clean Cooking Implementation Science Network: a network of 25+ researchers, implementers, and policymakers engaged in understanding how to accelerate the use of clean fuels for cooking, lighting, and heating in low- and middle-income settings around the world.
