Research Fellow in Nutritional Epidemiology, National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology

For the past 9 years, I've worked as a nutritional epidemiologist specializing in aging-related research. A major focus of my work has been studying how nutrition can help prevent diseases like dementia and frailty that severely diminish quality of life for older adults. While I examine the nutritional benefits of specific foods, I'm also very interested in understanding the overall health impacts of entire dietary patterns.
