Dr. Iannotti’s current research focuses on program evaluation and impact modeling of undernutrition, infectious diseases, and poverty. In two project sites in Haiti and East Africa, she is studying the combined effects of interventions designed to prevent undernutrition, improve water and sanitation, and foster economic development.
Iannotti has expertise in the areas of infant and young child nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies (zinc, iron, and vitamin A) affecting resource-poor populations. She is actively involved in developing the global health components of the MPH program at Washington University’s Brown School and within the Institute for Public Health.
Dr. Iannotti received her PhD in International Nutrition from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, and her Master of Arts degree in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia. Prior to pursuing her PhD, she worked for over ten years with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and UN agencies on nutrition and food security programming and policy in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
