My previous degrees are an M.S. in nutrition science from the University of Nevada, Reno, an R.D. (registered dietitian) from Marywood University, and a B.S. in nutrition and dietetics from Murray State University.
I want to have a career where I can use my passions—food nutrition and health!
My research interests are food chemistry and food science, analysis of health promoting bioactive compounds, sensory evaluation of food grown in urban systems; nutritional quality of foods grown by urban systems, consumer acceptability comparison between hydroponically and conventionally grown produce, and environmental and oxidative stress of bioactive compounds.
