Areas of expertise My main areas of interest are in nutrition and environmental epidemiology. I am presently researching the effects of prenatal exposure to heavy metals, including lead, cadmium and mercury, on childhood outcomes such as growth and neurological development. I also lead a project on picky eating behaviour in children looking at the effects on nutrition, growth and other aspects of development.
