My research interest is focused on the role of diet and lifestyle factors in the development of cardiometabolic disease, such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which is a leading cause of death in the United States and world wide. In particular, I am interested in utilizing circulating metabolomic profile to explore the potential mechanism underlying the exposure-disease association. My research area also includes gene-diet interaction and Mendelian randomization studies in the cardiometabolic disease.
