My research centers on nutrition care for the transgender population using qualitative and mixed method approaches. Diet and nutrition considerations for the transgender population are both clinical and psychological in nature. Clinical aspects center on the ways in which diet may mitigate known effects of hormone therapy and gender-affirming surgeries. Psychological aspects include treatment of eating disorders and diet as a means for self-care and health promotion.
