Dr. Sudfeld's research focuses on the interaction of nutrition and infection on maternal and child health in resource-limited settings. His research and education program is focused in three areas:
i) Randomized trials of nutrition and infection interventions
ii) Observational studies examining the relationship between early life nutrition and infection, child development, and human capital outcomes in adolescence and adulthood
iii) Research capacity building at partner organizations in epidemiologic methods and biostatistics
