RESEARCH INTERESTS
The incidence of obesity-linked diabetes (type-2 diabetes) is increasing worldwide and has accordingly been termed “the diabesity epidemic.”  Despite the prevalence of overweight and obesity there are no truly effective pharmacological treatments or cures.  Additionally, homeostatic systems regulated by the brain oppose sustained weight loss.  Thus, understanding how the brain regulates energy balance and weight is crucial to developing better therapeutics for treatment and prevention of obesity and obesity-linked disease.
