General Research: 

Dr. Economos's research efforts have addressed the interaction between exercise, diet, and body composition aimed at preventing osteoporosis and obesity, starting in early childhood. She is the principal investigator of multiple large-scale studies examining childhood nutrition and physical activity with the goal of inspiring behavior, policy, and environmental change to improve the health of America's children. She has worked effectively with diverse communities and has crafted, implemented, and evaluated physical activity and nutrition education curriculum. Dr.

Policy drivers of the food system

NUTR 340

Course Title: 
Food Politics and Policymaking in the US
340

This course uses contemporary food issues to examine core elements of the U.S. system of government and to illuminate dynamics in American politics and policymaking. Its primary purpose is to develop a clearer understanding of how government institutions function, and how politics broadly understood shape what we end up calling (perhaps with some overstatement) “food policy.” As such, the course focuses it attention on such elements as the constitutional foundations of the U.S.

NUTR 342

Course Title: 
Food Systems Modeling and Analysis
342

Agriculture and food industries are a subject of growing interest in terms of their resource requirements, ecological impacts, and sustainability.  This course will provide a foundation in some of the methods of modeling and analysis used to study food systems. We will address several types of approaches, generally building in complexity, starting with net balances of production and consumption and continuing through modeling food production capacity, foodshed analyses, life cycle assessment, and system dynamics and integrated modeling.

General Research: 

Broadly, my research interests center on interactions between individual factors, such as self-regulation abilities, and aspects of the environment, in predicting child weight outcomes over time. I am also interested in how these links can be applied to modify obesity risk early in life and how obesity prevention efforts could benefit other aspects of child health and well-being.

NUTR 323

Course Title: 
Intermediate Biostatistics: Regression Methods
323

This course provides a survey of regression techniques for outcomes common in biomedical and public health data including continuous, count, binary, and time series data. Emphasis is on developing a conceptual understanding of the application of these techniques to solving problems, rather than to the numerical details.
