Description of research:I have been educated primarily in the fields of nutrition and public health, with training in a wide range of disciplines such as geography, First Nation studies and international development. My research has thus far been community-based, working with Indigenous women and their communities on determinants of food choice, and chronic disease prevention. I also have experience working in international nutrition policy and evidence-based guideline development with the World Health Organization. Current research interests continue to focus on health inequalities, taking into consideration community interests, along with environmental and other factors influencing maternal and child health, along with Indigenous food systems globally.
