Dr. Jones studies the influence of food security on the nutritional status of women and young children in low-income settings in India, southern Africa, and South America. He examines the impact pathways of agriculture and food environments on the food and nutrition security of households in rural, semi-rural, and peri-urban areas. He also conducts research on the the role of food security in shaping the co-occurrence of micronutrient deficiencies and overweight among women of childbearing age, and the consequences of this for infant and child nutrition.
