Dr. Kristin P. Tully joined the CGBI team this June as a Research Associate. She majored in Economics and Honors Anthropology for her B.A. at the University of Notre Dame, obtained a Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology from Durham University in England, and successfully completed an NICHD postdoctoral fellowship at the Duke University School of Nursing and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Center for Developmental Science through the inter institutional Carolina Consortium on Human Development.
Currently, Kristin also project manages two federally funded longitudinal research studies
on parenting contributions to infant sleep through the Center for Developmental Science.
Kristin is interested in understanding and supporting the individualized needs of new
families. Her program of research investigates childbirth decision-making, infant feeding tradeoffs, and parent-infant sleep practices.
Kristin is “delighted and honored to join the CGBI team. It takes a village to be a breastfeeding mama. I especially thank my husband, Jon, and my dad, Chip, for their support in enabling me to take on these professional roles. The opportunity to effectively contribute to, and continually learn from, the Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute and our colleagues is very exciting.” You can reach Kristin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
