I am a nutritional epidemiologist, with additional experience in biostatistics and health geography. I have a BA in Biology from Hendrix College (2001), and a MHS in International Health from the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University (2003). I earned my PhD in Nutritional Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina (2009), where I was also a NSF IGERT trainee at the Carolina Population Center.

I worked as a Lecturer in Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Leeds, where I held a three-year MRC Population Health Scientist Fellowship to investigate infant and child growth patterns. I also taught masters-level classes in Nutritional Epidemiology, and Obesity and Public Health.

I am now at UCC as a Senior Post-doctoral Researcher funded by an Interdisciplinary Capacity Enhancement award, investigating nutrition and health across the life course using a variety of Irish cohort studies. I also work internationally with a number of large cohort studies in Brazil, the Philippines, India, South Africa, and Guatemala (COHORTS).

Methodologically, I use functional data analysis to look at longitudinal, anthropometric data; and latent variable methods to measure complex, multidimensional constructs such as dietary patterns and socioeconomic status.
