My expertise includes the evaluation of how and why people make behavioral change, including food-related changes. I'm interested in the decision-making process that consumers use for food choice. I examine the relationships among behavior, health-related outcomes, and mediating variables which promote and sustain behavioral change, especially for people managing chronic diseases. My research program includes the development, implementation and evaluation of behavior change interventions. My contribution to the Center would be in biomedical nutrition and in developing programs to facilitate the adoption of novel food products by consumers for health promotion and disease prevention.
