Research interests

My lab is interested in the effect of nutrient intake on bone and joint health at various life stages. Animal experiments and clinical trials are conducted to investigate the mechanism and effect of nutrition on skeletal health. Nutritional epidemiology focusing on nutrient status and disease are also performed using NHANES and KNHANES. Specific research focuses include:


- Nutrient intake and bone health in pregnant women and their offspring

- Interactions between dietary intake and gut microbiome and bone metabolism

- Nutrient status and joint health
