Personal profile

My research in a nutshell

I am interested in how our genes predipose us to, or protect us from, the adverse metabolic effects of the modern "obesogenic lifestyle". I believe understanding the intrinsic mechanisms that allow some people to remain lean, healthy and age successfully despite the "onslaught of plenty" will illuminate new therapeutic avenues for metabolic dysfunction and its associated diseases.
