My research interests focus on nutritional epidemiology and the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease. Specific research projects include studies of dietary intake and cardiovascular disease and its risk factors in adults. Recent projects include the study of dietary intake (diet patterns, added sugar, processed foods), biomarkers (metabolomics, fatty acids), adipose tissue depots, and cardiovascular disease.
