My research activities focus on exploring mechanisms of and treatments (exercise/nutritional) for metabolic dysfunction, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. I also work on research projects using population-based studies to investigate the role of lifestyle behaviors in cancer prevention and control. Ultimately, I aim to utilize evidence-based research to develop accessible strategies reducing childhood and early- adulthood obesity and the burden of chronic diseases.
