Nutrition Communications Research
As a Nutrition Communications Research Consultant, I help groups conduct research using online technologies and social media platforms. Contact me for consultant inquiries here.
I’m currently finishing my PhD at Columbia University in NYC- studying Nutrition and Behavior Change (graduation May 2018). I’m passionate about improving obesity rates in the US by helping people modify their dietary choices.
My research interests primarily include:
- What are the best practices for communicating nutrition science to different groups online (websites, social media, etc.)
- How to use social media to improve dietary choices in meaningful ways
As a Research Coordinator at Columbia, I helped lead a number of studies examining the effects of online nutrition education on dietary choices, particularly among cancer survivors.
I also work with Laura Barre at Cornell University, where we are examining possible effects of food-related social media posts on food choice.
I, myself am a Social Media Influencer as “The College Nutritionist”, where I help college students & recent grads navigate their newfound autonomy re: food choices.
