Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My major research interests and activities over the next several years will focus on the development and evaluation of the objective measurement of physical activity in free-living populations using a variety of sensing devices and mobile phones for data collection and processing. Sensing devices include wireless accelerometers, altimeters, heart rate, skin temperature/heat flux and breathing rate monitors. This research is funded by NIH and is being conducted in collaboration with scientists at MIT. I will continue to direct the Stanford Heart Network, an internet-based patient and health professional support system, with the major mission being to assist community-based CVD prevention/treatment programs implement more effective heart attack and stroke prevention programs. Also, I will continue to collaborate with colleagues on studies promoting energy balance and successful aging.
