Our research group is dedicated to pioneering precision nutrition strategies with the goal of effectively mitigating cardiometabolic disease risk through targeted dietary approaches. Harnessing our expertise in nutrition, epidemiology, metabolomics, and bioinformatics, we integrate -omics profiles to identify the biological process that play a critical role as mediators and modifiers in the nexus between diet and disease risk.

We primarily work with large-scale human population and dietary intervention studies. Our endeavors aim to develop biomarkers and computational methodologies to pinpoint population segments that are particularly vulnerable to the negative effects of specific foods or dietary patterns. Through this, we aspire to shape precision nutrition strategies for dietary risk prevention.
