Dr. Martin's Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Stephanie Martin holds a PhD in Nutrition from Cornell University. After serving as a Global and Public Health Lecturer and Research Associate at Cornell University, she joined UNC's Department of Nutrition as an Assistant Professor in September 2017.

Dr. Martin conducts mixed-methods research to examine multilevel factors that influence maternal and child nutrition practices and outcomes. She is currently examining fathers’ willingness to support infant feeding in Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zambia; breastfeeding practices among women working in the informal sector in urban Tanzania; adolescent nutrition in an informal settlement in Kenya; and challenges health workers experience when providing breastfeeding support to families in Appalachia. Her previous research in Kenya demonstrated the acceptability of community- and facility-based interventions to engage family members in maternal and child nutrition, and the positive relationship between social support and nutrition practices. Dr. Martin's research program has been informed by her 13-year career as a global health practitioner, which focused on the design and implementation of behavioral interventions in low- and middle-income countries.
