She came to the UK in 1990 and worked for a number of years at the Institute of Child Health, University College London, before joining the LSHTM in January 2005.Her research focuses on interactions between nutrition and infectious diseases, mainly in women and children in low income countries and mainly HIV.  Her work in Africa has investigated infant feeding and maternal health in the context of endemic HIV. She has been principal investigator of two large randomised controlled trials related to HIV in Africa: a trial of multiple micronutrient fortification of complementary foods for Zambian children, the CIGNIS trial, and a trial of nutritional supplements to decrease the early mortality of HIV-infected Zambian and Tanzanian adults starting antiretroviral therapy (NUSTART). She has also been involved in studies of vitamin D and child health in India: the DIVIDS trial of vitamin D supplementation for low birth weight infants, whom we have recently followed up now the children are 4-6 years old, and a new trial of vitamin D to prevent latent tuberculosis in school children.
