Primary Food Innovation Center Area: Food Safety
Areas of Expertise: consumer behavior, behavior theory, mental modeling, evaluation

I am in Human Nutrition (OSUE and OARDC appointments), and affiliated with the Public Health Preparedness for Infectious Diseases program. I research the educational needs of patients at immunological risk for foodborne illness needs of health professionals to meet patients' need for health information. I also teach about how socio-economic and cultural groups meet their nutritional needs. My combination of nutrition, food safety, and cultural diversity expertise will add to the interdisciplinary approach of the Center. In turn, I will benefit from the diversity of collaborations with researchers in fields tangential to my interest.
