Class of 2015
Major Professor: Marta Van Loan
Research Interests: inter-relationships among nutrition, hormones, inflammation and bone; the effects of nutritional interventions on bone metabolism in order to prevent and treat osteoporosis and other disorders
Bio: I worked as a clinical dietitian before coming to Davis and was thrilled to be able to work in Dr. Van Loan's lab. Many of my patients and both of my grandmothers had osteoporosis, so studying how to attenuate risk for this disease through nutrition has personal and professional significance for me. After graduating I hope to find a job in which I can combine clinical work with research.
