As the epidemics of obesity and metabolic disease continue, I am interested in discovering and deploying scalable solutions to these crises. These include not only novel therapies but also application of proven modalities in innovative ways to effect change. Finally, I look to build collaborative relationships within and without Pennington Biomedical Research Center to help make these goals a reality.
