Leila Larson, PhD, MPH

Research Fellow

Maternal and child malnutrition, particularly anemia and its implications for child health, growth and development are central to Leila Larson’s research interests. She has worked in various countries worldwide, including Laos, Lebanon, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Malawi, and India. Leila Larson received her Ph.D. in Nutrition and Health Sciences at Emory University. Her dissertation focused on consequences of malnutrition and effects on child development. As part of her Ph.D. research, she worked on an effectiveness trial to examine the impact of home fortification with multiple micronutrient powders on anemia and child development. Leila Larson has also worked with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition on an evaluation of a Double Fortified Salt program in Uttar Pradesh, India. Through her research in South Asia and her work with the Biomarkers Reflecting the Inflammation and Nutritional Determinants of Anemia (BRINDA) collaboration, she has pursued her interest in the etiology of anemia to examine the contribution of nutritional, genetic, infectious, and environmental causes of anemia in women and children. Leila is now a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Medicine at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and is working on the effects of iron on maternal and child health and development.
