Describe your research in about 200 words.

I have focused my research on nutrition epidemiology including discovering temporal dietary and lifestyle patterns and their relationship with health outcomes like obesity, improving food security among low-resource populations, and providing precise nutrition. The multidisciplinary research projects foster improving knowledge of the relationship of dietary intake and related temporal lifestyles behaviors to health outcomes. The overall aim of my research is to investigate the importance of temporal lifestyle behavior on improving health status, apply results to personalized and sustainable prevention and interventions, and translate the findings to guidance and food policy.
