Jessica’s area of expertise focuses on the multi-sectoral and system approaches to ensure better nutrition and diets. Her research is concentrated in three areas: (1) on the linkages between agriculture, water, and health to improve diversity and quality of maternal and young children’s diets in low-income rural communities, (2) the importance of regaining livelihoods in post-conflict regions through better nutrition governance (3) metrics for the emerging area of equitable, sustainable diets and value chains.
