Research Interests & Projects

My research interests include nutritional epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, and epidemiology of cardiovascular disease. I am particularly interested in the complex relationship between dietary factors and various cardiovascular/metabolic outcomes in the developing world that has been undergoing nutrition transitions.

Some of my current projects are: genetic modification of triggers of acute myocardial infarction in Costa Rica, associations between dietary patterns and metabolic syndrome in Samoa and in the United States, and new biomarkers of dietary fatty acids intake among school-age children.
