Meet Polly Palumbo, PhD

Hi, I'm Polly Palumbo. I'm a mother of three, a wife of one. I'm a research psychologist by training and I've worked in the field spanning health education and psychology. When our first child was born about 10 years ago, I became obsessed with children's research, anything to do with children or parenting. So I started my blog Momma Data, because I didn't like what all the other experts were saying and I didn't like what the media was saying. I firmly believe that parents should have information that's accurate, that doesn't worry them or bore them to tears. In my free time, I love to lie on the couch with a good book, cuddle up with my kids. I like to paint. I like to read and I like to do really messy art projects with my kids, like tie-dye and paper mache.

Polly Palumbo, PhD, is a former research psychologist and founder of Momma Data, a non-profit organization that tracks the parenting media and checks on the scientific evidence behind claims about children’s health and well-being.

In the past she’s conducted and collaborated on numerous research projects in psychology, health and education across academia, government and the private sector and has co-authored articles in leading academic journals and texts.  As an outspoken critic of the parenting media, the only thing she enjoys better than reading a great study is debunking a bad one on her Momma Data blog. It’s her mission to flush out misinformation in the media and coach parents how to judge news and evidence about kids.
