Research Interests & Projects

I am broadly interested in investigating how food insecurity, food access, and the food environment (nutrition policies and programs, etc.) impact dietary quality, chronic disease risk, and overall well-being in vulnerable populations. I am particularly interested in studying the association of food insecurity with dietary quality and chronic disease risk in children, adolescents, and college students.
