Research Statement

My research is in the longitudinal relationship among physical activity, health, and cognitive functioning in the pediatric population. Additional interests span public health including physical activity epidemiology, health-related fitness, and injury prevention. I attempt to use longitudinal and prediction modeling to examine the relationships among the aforementioned variables over time.

Research Keywords

  • Biostatistics
