I am a community-engaged nutrition scientist, public health researcher, and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with experience and training in health promotion and behavioral sciences and related research methodology, including assessment of dietary intake and physical activity, and the design and conduct of interventions focused on lifestyle behaviors. I conduct my work at the intersection of nutritional sciences research and public health practice where I seek to understand predictors and consequences of behavioral risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes risk. I apply this knowledge to the design and conduct of lifestyle behavior modification interventions for children, adolescents, and their families. My recent work has focused on social determinants of health, in particular nutrition security and food security, and how this intersects with health and risk of diet-sensitive illness.
