Student Food Security Research Project  


Work closely with Lorrene Ritchie, Suzanna Martinez and Lauren Au at UC Agriculture and Natural Resources’ Nutrition Policy Institute (NPI) on the student food security research project. In the spring of 2015, survey data were collected from a sample of students from all 10 UC campuses (total sample size is nearly 9,000 students). She will conduct additional analyses of the survey data to answer a number of additional research questions that are beyond the scope of the initial project.

Her research will help inform UC-wide strategies to address sustainable access to food and food availability. In addition, her findings may be used to inform how other universities address food insecurity among student populations.
