PULSe Contributor - not currently hosting students for laboratory rotations or recruiting students in the laboratory

Current Research Interests:

Research in my laboratory is focused on neural and endocrine factors involved in the control of food intake and regulation of energy balance. We are currently investigating the role of dietary macronutrients in energy balance and also how chronic caloric restriction influences regulatory responses to food intake.
