I will contribute by participating with colleagues in the health sciences to address food insecurity and food and feeding behaviors.  My past research has included dietary assessments, anthropometric measurements, macro- and micro-nutrient analysis, and nutrition and behavioral aspects of women during pregnancy and parenting.  I have explored the association of lipids and homocysteine and complications of pregnancy, especially preeclampsia and preterm birth. I am a co-investigator on projects that address health teaching related to nutrition and food preparation in women of childbearing age.
