Assistant Professor | Nutrition Coordinator

Dept. of Human Nutrition and Food Science, 

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, California 

I am a Registered Dietitian (Canada and USA) and have a PhD degree in Nutrition and Metabolism with a focus in Nutritional Epidemiology, from the University of Alberta, Canada. 

My work aims to empower individuals and communities to be able to make nutrition education and healthcare support accessible in order to reduce health-inequities in the ethnic minority communities. 

I have several years of experience in teaching and mentoring, both in Canada and Internationally. I enable participatory discussions, critical thinking, hands-on community-based experiential learning assignments /projects, and activities. I have a strong interest in giving back to the community and have been involved in providing nutrition education through local community organizations.
