I am interested in using interdisciplinary approaches to understand the impact of policy and systems strategies to reduce diet-related disparities among children in the US. Prior to starting in the doctoral program at UNC, I worked at Healthy Eating Research, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, where much of my work was focused on nutrition in early childhood. I have a master's degree in Public Health from UNC Chapel Hill and am a registered dietitian. My dissertation work is focused on estimating the effects of a pandemic-related increase in funding for fruits and vegetables in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).
