Thesis: Towards healthy and environmentally sustainable diets in Canada: an integrated nutrition and life cycle assessment (LCA) modelling of Canadian foods and development of a sustainable nutrition education program.

Research Interests and Future Goals: I am particularly interested in nutrition at the intersection of population and planetary health. My graduate research investigates the joint health and environmental impacts of foods in Canada and implementation strategies to promote healthful sustainable diets. In conjunction with my research work, I have a keen interest in using science communication to promote healthy and environmentally sustainable practices.
