Research Summary

My research has focused primarily on the impact of obesity on health. In work conducted with Dr. Sonia Caprio, we have evaluated metabolic impairment in young obese children and have identified markers of this impairment and strategies to prevent. In emergency department and other primary care settings, we are investigating methods of identifying individuals at risk of complications from obesity and ways to manage obesity.
