My research focuses on dietary assessment methods. The 24-hour recall and FFQ are the most commonly used dietary assessment methods in community nutrition research. The weaknesses of these methods are self-report biases and low accuracy levels. The WFR method, which is the gold standard for assessing dietary intake is also expensive to use and time-consuming.  With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the primary goal of my research is to validate new technologies (e-button & AIM) for dietary assessment. These new methods would be more accurate and less time-consuming for public health nutrition research compared to the current conventional dietary assessment methods.
