Research Interests

My research emphasizes behavioral health science, particularly obesity-related health behaviors/health promotion among diverse populations as related to the local environment and culture. My academic and scholarly efforts have focused on healthful eating and activity, active aging, and active living communities. I employ community-based participatory research methods and tools to examine how attributes of people interact with attributes of place across social ecological level to differently influence health behaviors and outcomes.
