Research Overview

I am very interested in behavioral weight loss and obesity prevention. These two topics will be the focus of my doctoral study with Dr. Tricia Leahey and Dr. Tania Huedo-Medina. During studies as a master’s student in health promotion sciences I focused on unhealthy workplace ergonomics as predictors of musculoskeletal pain with implications for an ergonomic intervention under the supervision of Dr. Pouran Faghri.
