Her research is focused on social determinants of dietary behavior and food policy for the promotion of health equity.

My most interesting food habit is… snacking on dried figs with almond butter – trust me, it’s a magic combo!

My favorite food-related smell is… garlic and onion sautéeing, the smell of any Brazilian kitchen.

My favorite ingredient is… cashews, nut AND fruit (yes, it’s a fruit)! This South American beauty makes its way into my kitchen in so many forms, from perfect dairy-free alfredo sauce to fresh fruit juice.
