Dr. Siew Siew's research focuses on three main areas: nutritional epidemiology, nutritional interventions, and molecular nutrition. In particular, she is interested in elucidating the mechanism that underpin the effect of maternal nutrition on the programming of adult disease risk and developing nutritional intervention strategies to improve maternal and child nutrition.
Her past research combined nutrition, analytical chemistry, and molecular biology to unravel the biochemistry of vitamin D in pregnant women and newborns.
In addition, she has been working extensively with multidisciplinary experts from Australia, Canada, UK and Malaysia on several nutritional research projects, including dietary interventions, iron-folic acid supplementation trial and infant, young child feeding practices.
