Associate Professor, Department of Kinesiology (Exercise Science Programs)
As a physical activity epidemiologist my research broadly focuses on examining associations between physical activity and human health and well-being from a public health perspective. More specifically, much of my research pertains to the following three concentration areas: i) the prevention and health consequences of obesity, ii) improving methods to measure physical activity in diverse populations, and iii) the use of wearable technologies to promote positive health behaviors throughout the lifespan.
