Research Statement

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most prevalent public health problem facing the United States and the rest of the Western world. Many researchers believe that diet is critical for both prevention and treatment of CVD. To this end my research is focused on understanding how cardiovascular function and metabolism can be regulated by consumption of macronutrients, as well as supplementation with magnesium, and dietary phytochemicals. The goals of my research are to determine efficacy of supplements and diet therapy, and answer questions regarding optimum dosage and mechanisms of action.
