Stephanie L. Martin, PhD

Assistant Professor
Department of Nutrition
  • 135 Dauer Drive
Stephanie Martin uses qualitative and quantitative methods to examine multilevel factors that influence women’s and children’s nutrition practices and outcomes. Her research largely focuses on the design, implementation, and evaluation of behavioral interventions in low- and middle-income country settings. Dr. Martin is currently examining interventions to increase fathers, grandmothers, and other family members support for infant care and feeding in Nigeria, Tanzania, and Zambia; support exclusive breastfeeding among women working in the informal sector in urban Tanzania; and improve adolescent nutrition in an informal settlement in Kenya. She also conducts implementation research as part of a USAID-funded child nutrition project in Zambia and to identify challenges health workers experience when providing lactation support to families in Appalachia.

Dr. Martin's research program has been informed by her 13-year career working on global health programs. As a global health practitioner, she implemented policy-, facility- and community-level programs, and developed dozens of training and communication materials to promote maternal, child, and adolescent health and nutrition, as well as HIV prevention, care and treatment.
