Research areas

My research examines the behavioral, cultural and environmental factors that support access to healthy food and safe environments for physical activity for youth, young adults and families. Recent projects have included working with low-income mothers passionate about creating neighborhoods that foster health; first generation college students mobilized to address food insecurity; and community residents dedicated to reducing health inequities. I regularly collaborate with local government, community stakeholders, and non-governmental organizations to develop health promotion programs and policies that improve nutrition outcomes, food security, and physical activity.
