My research focuses on the interaction between early-life nutrition and the developing gut microbiota. Currently I am conducting a longitudinal cohort study of infants with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Using a multi-omics approach (metabolomics and metagenomics), I am examining how a disturbed gut microbiota in early life may contribute to both oedematous and non-oedematous SAM development and long-term clinical outcomes of SAM following treatment.
