Brie M. Reid is a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow pursuing a PhD in Child Development in the Institute of Child Development with a specialization in stress, epidemiology, and nutrition. She holds an M.A. in Environmental Psychology and Design with a concentration in Global Health and Human Development from Cornell University and a B.A. from Cornell University. She is interested in the intersection of stress physiology and maternal and child health in contexts of risk. More specifically, her work examines the causes and consequences of malnutrition through the lens of stress physiology in children in the United States and internationally. While her past projects focused on health interventions for infants in sub-Saharan Africa, her current projects revolve around the impact of early adversity and growth stunting on children's growth, mental health, stress physiology, and immune system functioning.
