Emily Duffy, PhD Student

Research Project Personnel - Global Food Research Program

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 current research focuses on the labeling and marketing of sugary beverages in the United States.
