He is currently working with investigators from INCAP and elsewhere to examine the long-term consequences for human capital and cardiometabolic disease of exposure to a nutrition supplementation program targeted at pregnant and lactating women and young children in Guatemala; with CARE and Save the Children in the design and implementation of integrated nutrition and early child care and development programs in India and El Salvador; with the COHORTS investigative team on the analysis of data from birth cohort studies in Brazil, Guatemala, India, Philippines and South Africa; with the Young Lives investigative team on the analysis of data from cohort studies of children in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Viet Nam; and with investigators from South Africa on the extension of the Birth to Twenty cohort to the next generation.
