My current work is in collaboration with Zvitambo project and explores the feasibility and acceptability of a water sanitation intervention within the first 1000 days of life (Baby WASH). I am also working on a project that seek to strengthen Capacity to deliver nutrition interventions in Tanzania as part of the scaling up nutrition initiative.  My overarching interest lies in understanding the individual and combined effects of WASH, food security and nutrition interventions on early childhood development and under nutrition, and how multidisciplinary approaches can solve nutrition challenges.
