I am fascinated by ways in which variations in the human diet may have played an evolutionary role in shaping gut microbial diversity. I aim to understand how different nutritional strategies can influence the energy harvesting capacity of the gut microbiome, and how nontraditional sources of energy may lead to maladaptive consequences. In addressing these questions, my goal is to improve our knowledge of how nutrition and behavior impact long-term human health.
