My research interests include inquiries into the following: The impact of nutrition interventions in the rate of wound healing and wound prevention, nutrition interventions in the prevention of malnutrition/ health promotion in adults, and impact of clinical education on actual practice.
While my doctorate research and previous experience were focused on geriatric nutrition, I am excited about the prospect of widening my focus to include a broader age range that captures the nutrition issues that impact the wellbeing of the US Veteran population. It is my goal to contribute to the advancement of my field by undertaking interesting questions with innovative methods. Elevating the statistical and scientific rigor of the current research in nutrition is important to me.
