Dr. Fuller is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University under the supervision of Dr. Sean Cash. Her current research analyzes consumers’ acceptance and willingness to pay for food labels and novel food products. She analyzes sociodemographic factors that influence consumers’ decisions to purchase sustainable products. Her research interests include consumers’ responses to new product technologies, information, and policies.
At Tufts University, she works with the LASTING (Leading a Sustainability Transition in Nutrition Globally) project team, which aims to produce evidence-based recommendations for incorporating social and economic pillars into dietary patterns. This includes the development of novel metrics and methods to understand better the four pillars of sustainability: environmental, health, economic, and social.
Dr. Fuller is committed to working with interdisciplinary projects, a promising avenue to gain a deeper insight into how consumers make choices. Integrating process concepts and theories from different fields contributes to the enrichment of science and the generation of policies.
Dr. Fuller earned her PhD in Agribusiness at Arizona State University and an MS in Agricultural Economics at Louisiana State University. While pursuing her doctorate, she obtained a certificate in Environmental and Sustainability Economics from the School of Sustainability at ASU.
