I received my PhD from the Ohio State University Interdisciplinary Nutrition Program in 2007. My initial training was in the field of dietary chemoprevention. For my post-doctoral work, I transitioned to studying diet-induced obesity and the development of insulin resistance in the lab of Sanjay Rajagopalan in the College of Medicine. I started at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in late 2013 and am looking forward to new and exciting findings.
My research focuses on multiple aspects of the development of insulin resistance and metabolic dysfunction in obesity. We are equipped and experienced in studying immune-mediated inflammation as wells as various molecular aspects such as microRNA regulation of metabolic pathways.
