Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I will be presenting much of the planned work for my dissertation and am also one of the co-investigators for the planned study. I have had training in epidemiology in my master's and have received training on the development of public health programs during my doctoral studies. Among my scientific interests has been the development of policy-based obesity prevention strategies, community-based participatory research methods, and ethics of studying vulnerable populations.
