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 metabolism. My earliest training was in veterinary science. I study vertebrate metabolism, nutritional ecology, reproductive physiology, and embryonic development. I have an interest in how humans change their environment and the consequent health repercussions for both human and non-human vertebrates. I am a supporting partner of 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 research projects all examine the link between environmental influences (e.g., anthropogenic disturbance, parasite infestation, photoperiod, food availability, dietary components, and substrate availability) and genotypic expression, specifically changes in metabolism, reproductive physiology, and the timing of embryonic development. Current projects include 1) evaluating the use of sustainable agriculture in the Galapagos to control invasive parasites endangering some species of Darwin's finch, 2) examining how light intensity, wavelength, and photoperiod modify glucose and lipid regulation in vertebrates and 3) the effects of the endocrine disruptor BPA on metabolism.
