My research focuses on developing dietary and lifestyle strategies to prevent and manage diabetes and its complications and investigating earlier life risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease over the life-course. 


I am an Assistant Professor, the Department of Epidemiology, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. I have completed my doctoral study in nutritional epidemiology at University Toronto and postdoctoral training at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health working with large-scale cohort studies. I currently lead a research project on cardiometabolic life-course trajectories in younger adults, supported by junior faculty investigator grant from NIH.
