Abstract
The broad, overarching focus of my research relates to the etiology and epidemiology of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Within this context I focus on diet and lifestyle related factors throughout the life course with the ultimate goal of contributing to and informing efforts related to the prevention and control of these diseases. This research employs observational and experimental study designs, emphasizes discovery and translation, and incorporates cutting edge ideas, technology and methods. I am also involved with research on the relationship between diet, lifestyle and anthropometric factors with different cancers, Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline.
