    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My career goal is to improve our physical activity intervention strategies to prevent chronic disease. My work integrates epidemiology, exercise physiology, and psychology to understand physical activity behavior and identify factors that predict initial adoption and long-term adherence to an exercise program. I am particularly interested in ways to prevent and treat obesity by providing evidence to 1) support our physical activity guidelines and 2) discover new ways to help individuals meet our physical activity guidelines and reduce sitting. My immediate career goal is to obtain a post-doctoral fellowship award to advance my research trajectory and gain further training in understanding how to improve physical activity adoption and maintenance long-term.

    The Role of No-Calorie Sweetened Beverages within a Weight Loss Behavior Change Program and During Subsequent Weight Maintenance
    Role Description: Goal: The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that the amount of weight loss and maintained over time in an intensive weight management program will be equivalent in subjects consuming beverages containing non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS) compared to water.

    NIH/NIDDK
    Optimal Timing of Exercise Initiation within a Lifestyle Weight Loss Program
    Role Description: Goal: To determine the optimal time to begin exercise within a behavioral treatment program for obesity. A randomized design will be used to compare the efficacy of simultaneous versus sequential initiation of dietary weight loss and supervised exercise interventions within the context of a 1 year group based behavioral weight loss program with 6 months follow up. Outcome measures include body weight, body composition, objectively measured free-living physical activity, cardio-respiratory fitness, dietary intake, program adherence/attrition, exercise related injuries/adverse events and behavioral variables.

    Objective Validation of Amount of Physical Activity Required for Long-term Weight Loss
    Role Description: Goal: This project proposes a study integrated into a larger randomized clinical intervention trial (R01DK097266) with the aims of 1) investigating the association between objectively measured physical activity and long-term weight loss in overweight/obese adults and 2) identifying motivational profiles based on the Self-Determination Theory and determining how these profiles predict change in long-term physical activity.

    Comparison of Weight Loss Induced by Intermittent Fasting Versus Daily Caloric Restriction in Individuals with Obesity: A 1-Year Randomized Trial
    Role Description: Goal: To determine whether intermittent fasting is an effective dietary strategy for treatment of obesity. A 1 year randomized trial will be used to compare weight loss generated by Intermittent Fasting versus Daily Caloric Restriction. The targeted weekly energy deficit is designed to be similar (~30%) and a comprehensive behavioral support program will be provided to both groups. The primary outcome is weight change at the end of the 1 year intervention; follow up measures will also be obtained 6 months after completing the intervention. This study will provide robust data regarding weight loss effectiveness of intermittent fasting and will further our understanding of the impact of intermittent fasting on energy balance.

    Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease: Opportunity for Postdoctoral Training
    Role Description: Goal: The intent of the training program is novel, broad-based and comprehensive including basic, clinical, and population science opportunities on how obesity relates to CVD. Areas of focused training include hypertension, diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea and asthma, congestive heart failure (CHF), coronary heart disease (CHD), and cerebrovascular disease. Training is also focused on treatment and prevention of obesity.

    Enhancing Physical Activity Adoption and Maintenance in Adults with Obesity by Understanding Motivation for Exercise: A Mixed Methods Research Design
    Role Description: Goal: To use mixed methods research to optimize an innovative, theoretically based physical activity intervention designed to enhance motivation for exercise in adults with overweight/obesity. Specifically, quantitative data (Aim 1) will be integrated with qualitative data (Aim 2) to optimize an intervention designed to enhance MOtiVation for Exercise (MOVE) in adults with overweight/obesity (Aim 3).
