His research program focuses on understanding the molecular and genetic mechanisms contributing to the development of metabolic diseases including: obesity, diabetes, chronic inflammation and cardiovascular diseases. His goal is to develop translational research plans to improve the treatment and/or prevention of these diseases. Over the past five years I have been very productive as He published in prominent peer-reviewed scientific journals (33 publications) including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Endocrinology, the Journal of Biological Chemistry and Gastroenterology. Additionally, during my tenure at UC Davis, He has been able to establish several strong collaborative relationships. These collaborations were deeply gratifying and fascinating as they allowed him to learn novel experimental techniques and expand my knowledge base in the pathophysiology of chronic metabolic disorders. Also, they exposed me to the research endeavors of other investigators in the Division of Endocrinology, Immunology, Oncology, Clinical Nutrition and Vascular Medicine at the UCD-medical center (UCDMC), Cornell University, McGill University, and Harvard Medical School. University of Tennessee-Knoxville has strong research efforts in the field of metabolic regulation with a number of very active groups spread among campus that perform exciting research. One element that was helpful in choosing University of Tennessee was the strong collaborative nature of research between laboratories and the free sharing of ideas and tools among laboratories. In addition, my interest in modulation of metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease using dietary interventions, alongside other approaches, were the major factors that contributed to my choice of performing my research in the Nutrition Department. Furthermore, I enjoy teaching and mentoring students and pursuing a career in academia will give me the opportunity to engage students and fulfill my passion for teaching. He believe that he will possess the tools that will enable me to forge a path towards a productive career in the field of metabolic diseases within the Department of Nutrition at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville
