Research Interests

As a nutrition scientist with advanced training in dietetics and human clinical research, my long-term goal is to develop and validate dietary strategies that effectively protect against age-associated morbidities, including obesity; cardiovascular disease; gastro-intestinal disease; sarcopenia; and osteoporosis. To fulfill my long-term research goal, my short-term research objectives include investigating the effects of dietary constituents (including bioactive compounds and dietary macronutrients) on body composition and other cardio-metabolic health parameters in middle-aged and older adults from human clinical studies.
