Specialty

 

I am interested in cardiovascular risk factors, with a focus on nutritional epidemiology. I have developed and evaluated dietary assessment/screening instruments to meet the needs of unique populations (e.g., adaptation of dietary assessment instruments to estimate individual intake from meals in which people eat from a common plate) or for special projects (e.g., rapid diet quality assessment for pregnant women). I have also conducted population-based observational studies investigating associations between lifestyle exposures (diet and physical activity) and health outcomes. My experience also includes conducting a lifestyle intervention using digital tools, adapted for high-risk minority populations with literacy and numeracy barriers. As a part of this and other projects, I have developed culturally-adapted nutritional guidelines/educational materials for minority populations in Israel. Furthermore, I have worked on a number of national collaborative projects with the Israel Ministry of Health Department of Nutrition, conducting analyses of dietary intake data to inform nutritional policy development , e.g., fortification of flour for the Negev Bedouin Arab population, development of a national Food Frequency Questionnaire for the Israeli population, salt intake, processed meat intake, added sugar intake, development of a Mediterranean Diet screener adapted for the population of Israel
