Research & Publications

Research Summary
My research interests are to better understand how physical space and design (the "built environment") affect and influence human health, especially energy balance and chronic disease, among both children and adults. My research has involved large database studies, survey studies, as well as clinical studies, and I am currently the principal investigator on an NIH patient-oriented career development award (1K23HL103841-01) that incorporates a clinical intervention assessing how adolescents use the built environment for daily physical activity. My work is multidisciplinary and seeks to foster collaboration among health researchers and design professionals such as architects and urban planners.
