Kaitlin is a research fellow based at the LIDC. Prior to joining the Action Against Stunting Hub in June 2021, Kaitlin worked at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)’s Centre for Global Child Health as a research assistant on a series of case studies examining the drivers of stunting reduction in LMICs for Exemplars in Global Health, a research initiative funded by Gates Ventures and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Kaitlin holds an MSc in Global Health from King’s College London and is currently pursuing a PhD at McGill University, where her research explores the relationship between early life circumstances and adolescent health outcomes, the social reproduction of health inequalities within family units, and the potential role for policy interventions aimed at combatting childhood poverty. Her main interests relate to the social determinants of maternal and child health and the drivers of health inequality across the life course.
