Lindsay is working on the Sacramento Area Latino Aging Study (SALSA) and the Niños Lifestyle & Diabetes Study (NLDS)
Lindsay's research interests include:
Lindsay joined the Aiello Research Group in 2016 after receiving her PhD in Epidemiology and a Certificate in Global Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During her graduate studies she trained in Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology (Ruth L. Kirschstein Institutional Training Grant) and completed her MSPH/PhD work on the Genetic Epidemiology of Reproduction, Growth and Development in women and racial/ethnic minorities. Specifically, her American Heart Association-supported dissertation focused on the roles of acculturation, genetic risk factors, and their interactions on obesity in Hispanic/Latinos. Her previous education in Biology, and experience in Neurogenetics (NIH Intramural Research Training Award) have helped her bring a biologic perspective to the bio-social work with Dr. Aiello in the Sacramento Area Latino Aging Study (SALSA) and the Niños Lifestyle Diabetes Study (NLDS).
