Research description

Their research puts geriatric syndromes, mortality, and the biological mechanisms of aging at the centre, and studies them through the lenses of dietary patterns, foods, nutrients, and cooking techniques. Although observational in nature, they strengthen their investigations with a combination of longitudinal designs, the use of biomarkers, extensive control for potential confounding, and a range of sensitivity analyses.
