Department of Society, Human Development, and Health Student Profile
SM student, Department of Society, Human Development, and Health
Driven by his self-professed “people passion,” Rob became deeply involved in violence prevention and antisexism education as an undergraduate. He translated what he learned into his first professional position, as a violence prevention coordinator at the University of California, Irvine. In this role, he realized that health was his core interest, followed closely by communications.
At HSPH, Rob is conducting a pilot evaluation of Fat Talk Free Week, an international social media campaign aimed at “flipping the script” to promote positive body image among college students. He is especially interested in examining the potential of bystander intervention to disrupt fat talk. On campus, Rob is vice president of student life and an executive board member who has initiated creative education projects, notably Stall Stories, a restroom-based weekly newsletter.
Influenced by the Informal Learning course he took at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Rob is initiating a startup venture in health communications.
