About Me

I am interested in understanding how physical activity improves cardiovascular health and reduces cardiovascular disease, and have experience using data from several of the large epidemiological cohorts including MESA, ACCORD, and NHANES. I serve on the AHA Lifestyle Committee (2020-22) and AHA Obesity Committee (2020-22).
