We can use molecular biology and biochemistry to understand how macronutrient metabolism is regulated in cell and animal models.

Associate Professor

I study the transcriptional regulation of metabolism.

My research is focused on the role of functional foods and nutritional factors that regulate metabolic activity. We are actively investigating compounds that act as ligands for DNA-binding transcription factors to alter epigenetic regulation of metabolism.
