Throughout her educational and professional career, Christine’s areas of focus have included nutrition, food accessibility, obesity, chronic and acute stress, adolescent health and adversity, and infectious disease diagnostics. While in graduate school, Christine co-authored a publication in Obesity investigating associations of perceived weight status and weight change, and assisted in a project to decrease sugar sweetened beverage consumption among youth. Additionally, during her undergraduate program, Christine participated in economic research on adult and juvenile criminal justice programs for Connecticut’s Results First initiative.

On weekends, she continues this commitment by working with an organization that serves youth experiencing homelessness in Boston.
