Husein Mohammed comes to IMMANA from McGill University, where he is working toward a Ph.D. in Nutrition with a focus on maternal and child health throughout the lifespan. His previous research has focused on a variety of nutrient and health outcome combinations in Ghana and Ethiopia, including the impacts of iodized salt exposure on pregnancy and birth outcomes, as well as the interactions between stress, child obesity, hypertension, and diabetes in Ghana.
He has studied in Ghana and the Netherlands before Canada, and will be based in Ghana for his IMMANA Fellowship, which will focus on a nutrition education and microcredit intervention aimed at increasing animal source foods, and examine its impacts on child cognitive development.
