My research interest lies primarily in nutritional ecology. I seek to understand how variations in the human diet affects the composition and function, specifically the ability to harvest energy, of the gut microbiome. Using an evolutionary medicine perspective, I am also interested in how recent changes in the human diet may be mismatched to the diets our guts experienced over our evolutionary history and how this may be contributing to disease states.
