Leila Larson

Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Larson's work in the fields of nutrition and global health has three foci: 1) developing and evaluating integrated interventions to improve early child development and child health in resource-limited settings, 2) understanding the intersection of prenatal and postnatal exposures (e.g., climate change, malnutrition, infection, and microbial dysbiosis) on maternal and child health and development, and 3) improving the measurement of nutritional biomarkers and diagnosis of nutritional deficiencies in population surveys.  She has worked on several nutrition trials in pregnancy and childhood in countries such as Liberia, India, Bangladesh, and Malawi.
