Additional Tools and Researcher Information
Overall my research focuses on the treatment and prevention of obesity across the lifespan and factors related to successful outcomes such as child acculturation level, weight dissatisfaction, and weight status, in addition to parental factors such as parental weight status. I have also developed a line of research examining the role of summer weight gain in the development of obesity in children as well as behavioral and environmental factors related to summer weight gain. I am particularly interested in using the school summer paradigm as a way to identify novel determinants of childhood obesity and the design of interventions to address these novel causes. Much of my work has concentrated on the prevention and treatment of obesity among Mexican Americans, as this group is at greater risk for obesity and its comorbid diseases.
