Dr. Jennifer Black's research focuses broadly on the social determinants of health and dietary choices. She is interested in how attitudes and behaviours related to eating, cooking, food selection, body image and body weight status are shaped by socio-cultural and neighbourhood-level factors. Her research is shaped by her background as a registered dietitian and fuses methods and theory from nutrition education, public health, sociology and geography.
Research interests: nutrition, social determinants of health, public health, food insecurity
