Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies and a faculty affiliate in the interdisciplinary program in neuroscience at Syracuse University. I teach courses in nutritional biochemistry, nutritional genomics, and human metabolism. My research focus is on vertebrate metabolism, energetics, reproductive physiology, and embryonic development. I am interested in the ways in which humans alter their environment and the subsequent repercussions for both human and non-human vertebrate health. I am a supporting partner in the One Health Initiative, a worldwide strategy for expanding interdisciplinary collaborations and communications in all aspects of health care for humans, animals and the environment. My current projects include 1) evaluating the use of sustainable agriculture in the Galapagos to control an invasive parasite endangering some species of Darwin’s finch, 2) examining the ways in which light intensity, wavelength, and photoperiod modify glucose and lipid regulation in vertebrates, and 3) effects of the endocrine disruptor BPA on metabolism. I also collaborate with faculty at Cornell University, SUNY ESF, The University of North Dakota, The University of North Carolina/the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, The Charles Darwin Foundation, Brown University, University of Victoria (New Zealand), Penn State, Amherst College, and Franklin & Marshall College. The unifying concept for my research is the link between environmental influences (e.g., photoperiod, food availability, dietary components and substrate availability) and genotype and phenotype (e.g. changes in metabolism, reproductive physiology, and the timing of embryonic development).
