Marshall Allison

I grew up in Auburn, Alabama, and graduated from Auburn University with a BA in Spanish-International Trade with a minor in Social Work. I earned my dual Masters of Social Work/Masters of Public Health from UT Austin and UTHealth School of Public Health in Austin, and am currently pursuing my PhD in Health Promotion and Behavioral Science. Previously, I worked on the Restore Rundberg project as well as Dell Center projects TX CORD and Brighter Bites. Currently, I am working on the Brighter Bites Plate Waste Study in Houston and Dallas. I am passionate about combining public health and social justice. Research interests include health literacy and nutrition in low-income populations. 

I love my dog, running, yoga, exploring local farmers markets, and am currently working my own small balcony garden with tomatoes, herbs, and pepper plants. I also love traveling, and am fluent in Spanish and am working on learning French and Hindi.
