Academic Information
Research Summary: 
My research aims to take a cross-disciplinary approach to challenging oversimplified assumptions about relationships between diet, chronic disease, and longevity. In particular, I am interested in exploring the ways in which the potential health effects of consuming a particular food or dietary pattern may depend on other life history factors and health-related behaviors, as well as the broader ecological context. I am also fascinated by what factors influence people's dietary choices and preferences and how people's selected dietary patterns affect their sense of well-being.
