Primarily, her research focuses on infant and young child feeding; maternal nutrition; nutritional status across the life cycle; non-communicable diseases in pregnancy; reproductive and child health (antenatal care utilization, skilled delivery, mother-friendly care, HIV and infant feeding, neonatal care); and impact evaluation of nutrition/health programmes. Presently in her second year of doctoral study at the Institute of Public Health, University of Heidelberg, Germany, Faith is working with the research group on Global Health Policies and Systems on a project aimed at validating the screening and diagnostic tools for gestational diabetes in Ghana. On the private life, Faith is jovial, friendly and fun-loving. Balancing work-family life with school is challenging, especially since she has three children all under the age of six. But she looks forward to improving this balance as her children grow and to mentor young scientists.
