Dr. Kathryn Grace, Assistant Professor of Geography, Environment and Society, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities

Kathryn Grace is an Assistant Professor of Geography, Environment and Society at the University of Minnesota. Her research is focused broadly on the areas of Population Geography, Demography, and Health. Professor Grace’s current research highlights the role of context in various aspects related to maternal and child health—primarily reproductive health and family planning decision-making. Her approach builds on theories found in demography and public health with the goal to bring an alternative perspective to issues related to women's health and development. Through the use of a quantitative, mixed-disciplinary approach, she examines the ways individual, family, and household outcomes are conditioned by place,  including both the culture and the natural environment.  In addition, her work explores underlying theories of development and resource use and access, building on her personal experiences and observations from time spent in poor countries and communities.
