Dr Mary Cox

Before receiving her DPhil from the University of Oxford in Economic and Social History, Mary Elisabeth Cox received her MSc in Economic History from the London School of Economics, as well as a BA in German and a BA in Comparative Literature from Brigham Young University.

Her research focuses on how food insecurity generated by war impacts the health of people with disparate backgrounds—urban and rural, wealthy and poor, male and female, young and old. She also studies the creation of multinational institutions focused on international aid in the early 20th century. Her first book, Hunger in War and Peace: Women and Children in Germany 1914–1924, was published by Oxford University Press in 2019.
