    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Bio An urban planner by training, Dr. Chrisinger is committed to research that helps us understand relationships between the built environment and health, especially health disparities. Dr. Chrisinger is the co-Principal Investigator (Dr. Abby King, co-PI) for a pilot study, the Stress Experiences in Neighborhood and Social Environments Study (SENSES), that initiates a new line of inquiry using physiological data to better understand individuals' neighborhood perceptions within a community-engaged research process.

    His previous research has examined efforts to open new supermarkets in underserved areas ("food deserts") by considering development processes, store-level outcomes, and community and customer experiences. Another element of his past and continuing food environment research includes issues surrounding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps), and was a co-Investigator (Amy Hillier, PI) on a study funded by the USDA Economic Research Service to explore questions related to food store choice and nutritional outcomes. With Dr. Abby King?s Citizen Science Initiative, he also has coordinated a research partnership between with stakeholders in Camden, New Jersey to assess the city's healthy corner store initiatives.

    Dr. Chrisinger completed his doctoral training in City and Regional Planning at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a former fellow with the Emerging Leaders in Science and Society (ELISS) Program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Graduate Research Fellow with the National Science Foundation. He received undergraduate (Environmental Sciences, Urban and Environmental Planning) and graduate (Urban and Environmental Planning) degrees from the University of Virginia.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Bio I am a lifestyle epidemiologist passionate about understanding the role of nutrition and other lifestyle factors in keeping us healthy.

    During my training, I've gained extensive experience in epidemiologic research methods, including the design and analysis of large-scale population-based cohorts, clinical trials, and meta-analysis.

    At Harvard, I organized a large international consortium examining the role of fatty acid biomarkers and incident cardiometabolic outcomes.

    At Stanford, I am excited to be diving into the world of gene-environment interactions for cardiovascular disease prevention, and precision health initiatives.
