Personal Statement
I have been a clinical/translational researcher in the area of body weight regulation, obesity and metabolism for twenty years at the University of Colorado. Specifically, the goals of my research have been to: 1) investigate the complex regulation of food intake and appetite regulation and the effects of nutritional interventions on body weight and metabolic regulation; 2) better understand the effects of nutrition and exercise on energy balance and metabolism; and 3) ultimately translate this knowledge into better interventions to treat patients with obesity and other related diseases such as type 2 diabetes. Specifically, I have been examining the effects of phenotypes and interventions, including nutritional and exercise, on the neuronal, behavioral, and hormonal responses to food and food-related stimuli and on whole body and tissue specific insulin action and signaling. I am also studying the impact of aging on body weight regulation. My group is also examining the effects of meal timing on weight loss outcomes.
