I am currently a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Health Behavior Research program at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. I previously graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics from the University of Southern California in 2016. My doctoral dissertation research utilizes mobile health technologies and sensors to understand how social processes and systems affect obesity-related health behaviors in children and families.
I am broadly interested in health and food policy, food systems, climate change, and sustainability. In the coming years, I plan to investigate the impact of climate change on eating behaviors, food systems, chronic disease risk, and health inequities. I’d also like to engage in research examining how food systems and policies can be leveraged and transformed to encourage individual-level eating behaviors that both improve chronic disease outcomes and help mitigate climate change and its subsequent effects on human health.
In May 2021, I will be joining the Yale School of Public Health and the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center as a Postdoctoral Fellow.
