Research Interests

Dr. Krishnan's research focuses on characterizing human variability in macronutrient metabolism with specific impacts on energy intake and expenditure, body weight maintenance, obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. She has focused on women's health, identifying dietary, physical activity and sex steroid hormone influences on macronutrient metabolism and maintenance of body weight. Current projects include understanding the role of menstrual cycle hormones on appetite, and using artificial intelligence to achieve nutritional phenotyping, and understanding the impact of dietary patterns on cardiometabolic health.
