Research Interests:
Dr. Martin is an expert on the quantification of energy intake and expenditure in both controlled and free-living conditions. He is also a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of Louisiana and has extensive experience conducting and supervising interventions to modify food intake, exercise, and body weight. His work also includes the objective quantification of adherence to weight management interventions that modify food intake and exercise behavior. Dr. Martin’s research includes the application of novel technology and mathematical algorithms to monitor and modify participants’ behavior through e-Health (telehealth) interventions while participants reside their natural environments.
