I am a researcher and academic in Physiology, Neuroscience and Biomedicine. My interests are in how the nervous system regulates metabolism, and identifying dietary substances that increase energy expenditure in the body. Additionally, I am interested in the effects of dietary patterns in chronic disease and the role of nutrition in disease prevention.
