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's research involves improving the quality and impact of maternal and child nutrition programs in low-resource settings, with a focus on the influence of social support and family members. Her mixed-methods research examines multilevel factors that influence maternal and child nutrition practices and outcomes, and the implementation of maternal and child nutrition programs. She is currently exploring family members' experiences supporting women's dietary and infant and young child feeing practices in Kenya and Tanzania, and examining the relationship between social support and infant feeding practices in a longitudinal observational cohort in Uganda. 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 influenced by her 13-year career as a global health practitioner, which focused on the design and implementation of behavioral interventions.
