Doctoral Student Affiliate Kayla J. Hurd (anthropology) has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) award. Hurd is co-principal investigator alongside Faculty Fellow Vania Smith-Oka. Hurd’s abstract is titled “Doctoral Dissertation Research: The effects of COVID-19 on food choice and well-being" and her research investigates how people adjust food choice to crisis in the context of the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Hurd will conduct surveys, gather data on food consumption and diet-related activities, and collect biological measurements (hemoglobin levels, height, weight, body fat percentage) in communities that have been variably affected by COVID-19 in terms of maintenance of personal and household income and community-wide food availability.
