    Bio I am a Nutritional Epidemiologist passionate about understanding the role of diet in disease risk.

    During my training, I've gained extensive experience in epidemiologic research methods, including the design and analysis of large-scale population-based cohorts and meta-analysis, and organized a large international consortium examining the role of fatty acid biomarkers and incident cardiometabolic outcomes.

    My interest in 'big data' projects has extended to my current work at Stanford, where I am excited to be diving into the world of gene-environment interactions and precision health initiatives.

    Bio My long-term plan for training is to gain insight of the evolutionary and developmental origin of cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes. I am especially interested in mechanism of insulin resistance as the underlying risk factor for these disorders.
