Hi, I'm Marie
I am an expert in public health nutrition and sustainable food systems. I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington School of Public Health in the Department of Epidemiology, and a core faculty member in the new major in Food Systems, Nutrition, and Health within the Nutritional Sciences Program.
I approach public health nutrition research through a food systems lens that recognizes the need for transdisciplinary and multisectoral collaboration. My research focuses on food loss and waste, value chains for nutrition, systems modeling of food supply chains, and capacity building within nutrition and public health. To explore these topics, I draw from training in quantitative and qualitative research and systems science, as well as my training as a registered dietitian nutritionist.
Previously, I have conducted research as a Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future Lerner Fellow, as a Senior Analyst at the Global Obesity Prevention Center at Johns Hopkins, and as an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Fellow. I have received the Mary P. Huddleson Award, the Abell Award in Urban Policy, and the Gordis Teaching Fellowship. I'm a graduate of the University of Washington (BS/BA) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (PhD, MSPH, and dietetics training).
