Dr. Hadley's research centers on the social and cultural production of health and is at the intersection of anthropological demography, population studies, public health nutrition, and population health. He is interested in issues of food insecurity and how uncertain and unpredictable household environments influence physical and mental wellbeing across the life course and across generations. With colleagues, Hadley is also examining the occurrence of food insecurity among refugees and immigrants to the US and examining how insecure access to food might generate health disparities. His research also touches on issues of infant and young child feeding practices, and how cultural norms around infant feeding impact on health and demographic outcomes.
