My main research area is cross-cultural variation in perceptions of healthy eating, but my writing includes a wider range of topics related to health and well-being – e.g., the evolution of human dietary requirements/preferences and social influences on health behaviors. I also have produced science communication pieces related to diet and health research (articles, videos, podcasts). Lastly, as my current position includes a variety of public opinion research topics outside of health, see my additional work at the end of this page.
