Kayla de la Haye is an Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine at the University of Southern California.


My research combines psychology, social network science, and health promotion to answer questions such as:

How do our everyday social connections influence our health and what we eat?

Why is social isolation so bad for our health?

How can public health programs help to create social contexts that support good health?

How do groups like teams, families, and communities, solve complex problems (like health problems) together?
