I am interested in the dynamics of growth faltering in early life. I focus on identifying and quantifying individual faltering episodes, linking them to environmental factors and adverse conditions and situating growth faltering within the broader framework of individual health using biomarkers of oxidative stress/inflammation & biological age.
