My long-term goal is the prevention of chronic disease, with an emphasis on diabetes and hypertension, in high risk populations. I aim to accomplish this through the investigation of dietary patterns, the mechanisms of dietary influence on disease risk, and through designing practical, daily, dietary interventions that lead to incremental changes reducing overall chronic disease burden.


A major developing interest in my research focuses on the contribution of mobile technologies to track habits, deliver interventions and serve as an adjunct traditional office-based clinical care for chronic diseases.
