Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of California, San Diego

My research has focused on the study of health-related behaviors and how they relate to cardiovascular and metabolic health. While the behaviors I study most are indoor smoking and sedentary behavior, I have also led studies on incidental physical activity, preventive health service use, depressive symptoms, and human computer interaction. My research combines analytic methods from econometrics, biostatistics, epidemiology, and time series analysis, with training in study design and behavioral science to identify, study, and address relevant public health problems.
