Personal profile

Research interests

My primary research interests are in the areas of stress and exercise physiology and exercise psychology. More specifically, I am interested in 1) the mechanisms by which stressors can affect exercise performance in a variety of species, including humans, and 2) the psychological factors that are associated with participation and performance in exercise.

Project Title: Breastfeeding and food preferences in Native American women

Project Description: Anecdotally, we know about food cravings during pregnancy (usually for unusual food combinations like pickles and ice cream), but research studies have shown that taste perceptions change during pregnancy. Unfortunately, studies of taste preferences in breastfeeding women have not been conducted. To address this gap in understanding, we published the results of a survey of food interests/preferences completed by lactating women. To date, similar surveys of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) women who are breastfeeding have not been conducted. Better understanding of the factors that influence food choices is particularly important for the AI/AN population, who suffer disproportionately from obesity and related comorbidities, including diabetes and heart disease. This information may be helpful in understanding food choices made by AI/AN women who are breastfeeding, and may aid healthcare professionals in advising these women about food choices.
