Graduate Research Assistant

Grace Chamberlin is a Master of Public Health student in the Department of Health Policy. She graduated from Williams College in 2019 with a BA in sociology and public health and went on to work as a Community Health Fellow with Project Horseshoe Farm in Greensboro, Alabama and a Clinical Research Coordinator focused on COVID-19 and sexual health studies with the Medical Practice Evaluation Center in Boston, Massachusetts. These experiences cemented her interest in using community-based research and policy to promote healthy lifestyles and prevent chronic, diet-related disease. At the Global Food Research Program, Grace will be working on a global survey of food policies in schools.

When I’m in a time crunch, I love to make… avocado toast. I’m a sourdough baker and usually have some on hand, so my go-to version has honey, mashed avocado, Trader Joe’s ‘everything but the bagel seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes, and feta cheese on top. 

Foods I must have in my home are… Teddie’s crunchy peanut butter, dark chocolate, and a stockpile of (frozen) Jersey bagels. 

My favorite song about food is… Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson, especially when accompanied by makin’ banana pancakes. 

My favorite food-related smell is…sautéing onions and garlic.
