Brief Bio

My research focuses on the promotion of health-enhancing behaviors, particularly physical activity. With a background in exercise science and behavioral epidemiology, my current research interests include using the behavioral epidemiological framework to promote health-enhancing behaviors across the lifespan. Specifically, I conduct research that examines the effects of physical activity and diet on various health outcomes; evaluate effective methods to assess physical activity and sedentary behavior; identify behavioral and psycho-social determinants of physical and sedentary behavior; conduct physical activity-related intervention studies; and conduct translational research.
