Grant Information

Characterizing the relationships of genetic risk and parental coercive feeding practices with appetitive traits and adiposity gain across early life.
R01DK136698 (NIDDK)
Role: multi-PI
Goal: To disentangle the longitudinal associations between genetic obesity risk factors, parental feeding practices, child obesogenic appetitive traits and adiposity gain during the preschool years. Through repeated measurements from 2.5 through 5 years of age, this research will advance our understanding of the etiology of child obesity to guide future targeted obesity prevention efforts.

Prospective impact of media use on sleep and obesity risk in preschoolers
9/01/2018-6/30/2024 (NCE)
K01DK117971 / NIDDK
Role: PI
Goal: To assess the associations between household chaos, media use, sleep and eating behaviors in a prospective cohort of preschool-aged children.

Calibrating and validating accelerometry for use across early childhood (6-24 months)
R03DK131154 /NIDDK
Role: PI
Goal: To develop algorithms to classify physical activity intensity among infants and toddlers using a wearable accelerometer and IMU.
