Research Interests

My current research focuses on combating (prevention and management) cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity in women by exploring dietary, exercise and lifestyle habits, especially focused on personalizing changes to optimize health solutions. In addition, I am also interested in phenotypic differences in the manifestation of disease pathogenesis, especially in identifying them using -omic (metabolomic, proteomic, genomic, glycomic and microbiome) tools. Further, I believe in using statistical modeling to evaluate the inter-individual variability to shed light on how to personalize solutions. Current projects include understanding the role of menstrual cycle hormones and endocannabinoids on appetite and craving, using artificial intelligence and neural network modeling to achieve nutritional phenotyping, and understanding the impact of dietary patterns on cardiometabolic health in women.
