Danielle Krobath

Danielle Krobath is the inaugural RSSP Collaborative Postdoctoral Scholar at Tufts University. With dual appointments at the Friedman School and the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development at Tufts, Dr. Krobath works across the Tufts Institute for Global Obesity Research (TIGOR) and Equity in Health, Wealth & Civic Engagement Priority Research Clusters to reveal structural determinants of obesity inequities. A major line of her research involves conceptualizing and evaluating the joint influence of multiple forms of marginalization (i.e., racialization, structural racism, and interpersonal discrimination) on health and nutrition outcomes across the lifespan. Presently, she is testing novel data harmonization techniques to assess the complex interactions between individual, interpersonal, and environmental factors on child and adolescent obesity risk. Dr. Krobath earned a Ph.D. in Food and Nutrition Policy and Programs at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University in 2022. In addition, she holds an MS in Food Policy and Applied Nutrition from the Friedman School and a BA in Social Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Boston.
