My research focuses on obesity prevention interventions that target children and adults in their natural settings, such as home, work, schools, and neighborhoods. My interventions target change in both individual-level behavior and the environments that shape behavior. Specifically, my work has looked at the role of the home food environment, physical activity, and food policies that shape population eating behaviors.
