On staff since February 2007

Academic Title: Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Research Center: Center for Child Health, Behavior and Development

"I would try to find ways to help children and adults be more active and eat more healthfully, even if I werent paid to do it. Its fascinating to explore how we can help people change behaviors that are difficult to change and help them sustain those changes. This is an issue that cuts across a large percentage of our population. We need better solutions, and were close to knowing at least a few."

Research Description

I conduct research in environmental influences on physical activity and eating behaviors and on the psychosocial factors that influence individual choice for weight-related behaviors. This work includes examining how the neighborhood environment impacts weight status, physical activity and dietary behaviors across the lifespan. I also work in the evaluation and improvement of family-based behavioral treatment for pediatric overweight.
