Current Projects

My research interests concern evaluation of the effect of diet on health and disease focusing on the omega-3 fatty acids of marine and agricultural origin and their oxygenated derivatives. Research projects involve analysis of fatty acids and their oxygenated derivatives and an examination of their effect on inflammatory processes including ovulation and asthma.
