Hello and welcome to Food Science Nerd! If you've landed here, I'm assuming you're interested in learning more about how simple scientific know-how can help you create healthier, tastier, and/or easier meals and become more confident in the kitchen. If so, you've come to the right place!
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist hailing from Boston, but I lived in New Jersey (as you'll be able to tell from my posts) while getting my Masters in Nutritional Biochemistry at Rutgers, where I researched intracellular cholesterol transport. While lab work is a fascinating and vital part of my career plan, my true passions lie in nutrition, cooking, and culinary science (think America's Test Kitchen, The Food Lab, or Good Eats). I have also worked as a clinical dietitian and have extensive experience in community nutrition/counselling as well. I'm studying sports nutrition on the side in hopes that I can help women's hockey players and ballerinas optimize their performance by addressing their very specific nutrition needs.
