I have long been interested in better understanding how diet and lifestyle can support health and help prevent chronic degenerative diseases. I believe it is important to look at relationships between diet, lifestyle, and health from a holistic and comprehensive perspective that considers environment, culture, society, economics, politics, history, and biology. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in biocultural anthropology at the University of Washington in Seattle. I also received my Master of Public Health in epidemiology from the University of Washington.
