Andrew Jones

Research Affiliate, Population Studies Center.

Assistant Professor, Environmental and Health Sciences, School of Public Health.

Ph.D., Cornell University

Dr. Jones studies the influence of food security on the nutritional status of women and young children in low-income settings in India, southern Africa, and South America. He examines the impact pathways of agriculture and food environments on the food and nutrition security of households in rural, semi-rural, and peri-urban areas. He also conducts research on the the role of food security in shaping the co-occurrence of micronutrient deficiencies and overweight among women of childbearing age, and the consequences of this for infant and child nutrition.
