My major research interest is commercial and noncommercial foodservice management. I have conducted research examining healthy eating environments, particularly focused on obesity and identifying benefits for both consumers and the restaurant industry. Ultimately, I would like to find the most desirable set of foodservice initiatives that would improve eating environments, and consequently increase both healthful eating and restaurant profits.
