I have dedicated my research to finding solutions to healthy aging and learning how behaviors affect our health.
My passion is to share this knowledge with you. Learn more »

Exercise Dependence

For some people exercise may become an addictive and excessive behavior. My research examines why this happens, how to measure exercise dependence, who may be at risk, and how to treat this compulsion to move.

Exercise Psychology

What are the psychological effects of physical activity? My research has focused on the effects of physical activity on body composition, body image, mood, adherence, eating behaviors, and quality of life.

Healthy Aging

Aging is inevitable – we cannot avoid it. So how can we age in a healthy way. I explore the science behind the effects of health behaviors such as exercise, sleep, diet, and supplementation on healthy aging.

Natural Supplements

Not all supplements are created equal. I critically examine the clinical science behind natural supplements such as resveratrol, green coffee bean extract, cocoa, saffron, and safflower oil.
