Research Interests

As an applied microeconomist, Dr. Adams’ research interests are at the intersection of economics and maternal and early childhood nutrition. Her current research is focused on the development of methods and tools to help low- and middle-income countries (1) use secondary data to estimate food and nutrient intake, (2) evaluate the cost and cost-effectiveness of alternative micronutrient interventions, and (3) identify economically optimal micronutrient intervention programs.
