Research Statement: Research interests include: (1) relationships among cardiovascular fitness, body fatness, and metabolic disease (e.g., metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes); (2) lifestyle interventions involving increased habitual physical activity and/or exercise training and dietary modifications in the prevention and treatment of metabolic and cardiovascular disease; and, (3) non-biological determinants of physical activity and obesity (e.g., access, income, and the physical (built) environment). Environmental exposure research is undertaken in twins to investigate gene by environment interactions and advanced methods for measuring lifestyle behaviors in space and time (spatial epidemiology).
