Geography is interdisciplinary in nature and malnutrition is ubiquitous globally. Geographical approaches allow for a comprehensive understanding of the relationships between biological, social, and environmental factors associated with nutrition. Nutritional geography is a nutrition-focused subfield of health and medical geography, in which researchers are interested in the variations in how nutrition manifests itself and the interactions between food system processes, human nutrition and disease, and social and environmental conditions. In three separate studies, I collaborated with researchers from various fields and used quantitative and qualitative methods to examine diverse issues of malnutrition from the perspective of a geographer.
