Faerber is a Post-doctoral Fellow in Global Health at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated from Emory University in 2019 with a Ph.D. in Nutrition and Health Sciences. Her dissertation research focused on novel measurement methods and behavior change strategies for complementary feeding in East Africa, much of which was conducted in partnership with the International Potato Center as part of the impact evaluation of an orange-fleshed sweetpotato project in southern Ethiopia. 

Specifically, Faerber has been involved in evaluating the impact of complementary feeding tools to promote age-appropriate portion sizes and energy dense complementary foods. She also holds a master’s degree in Public Health and is a Registered Dietitian. Her current work involves understanding social and behavior change approaches within nutrition-sensitive agriculture projects and programs in low- and middle-income countries.
