Research Focus
Metabolic Physiology and the Gut Microbiome: The long-term aim of my research is to understand how organisms integrate the myriad of diet, endocrine and environmental signals to coherently regulate energy homeostasis and to understand how disruption of this homeostasis leads to different metabolic pathologies. I am currently interested in understanding how bidirectional interactions between the host and microorganisms within the host control a diverse array of metabolic and other physiologic processes and how perturbations in these interactions leads to various diseases.
Specialty Focus
The focus of my research involves exploring how macronutrients and other factors within the foods we eat interact with both the intestinal tissue and intestinal microbita to alter both neurobiology of feeding behavior and glucose homeostatic control and understanding how dysregulation by these diet components leads to metabolic pathologies, including diabetes and obesity. To accomplish this, I use various mouse models of obesity, diabetes and gut-brain signalling.
