Service Description

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow. My research focuses on infants and toddlers and how early experience shapes the development of flavor and food preferences and eating behaviors during early childhood, as well as the long term implications of this early experience for later dietary patterns and obesity risk.

I received a B.S. in Psychology with an emphasis in Biology and a minor in Community Nutrition from the University of California, Davis in 2003.

In August of 2008, I completed my graduate work, earning a Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies from the Pennsylvania State University.
