Bio/Research

My research program, Promoting Optimal Weights through Ecological Research (POWER) explores the social and environmental determinants of the emerging obesity epidemic. My team’s research explores the ways in which social conditions and people’s behaviours (particularly food and eating behaviours) interact to transmit obesity and chronic diseases through social means.

My philosophy has always been to make the healthy choice the easy choice, and this can best be accomplished if stakeholders are made aware of the relationships demonstrated through research initiatives and stimulated to act on them. Therefore, a priority of all of my research endeavors is an integration of practitioners and policy decision-makers into the research/ intervention team to facilitate rapid action.
