Intrigued by the implications of malnutrition on the immune system, Jacquelyn brings a unique immunology and basic science perspective to the team. She hopes to help demonstrate that the implementation of effective nutrition interventions can improve immunity and health outcomes in low- and middle-income countries where communities experience undue burdens of malnutrition, infection, and mortality.

Jacquelyn earned a PhD in immunology from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and was also an active member of the Alternative Protein Project, which aims to increase research, education, and innovation in this space. She has been engaged in coursework, teaching, and outreach at the intersection of nutrition, microbiology, and immunology, and hopes to combine her interest in these fields for the benefit of public health and vulnerable groups worldwide.
