Dr. Diana Thomas’ research interests include developing, validating, and applying mathematical models to obesity related issues. Dr. Thomas has developed body composition models for use within energy balance equations that predict changes in weight in response to altered diet, increased exercise energy expenditure, and pregnancy. Dr. Thomas has also developed mathematical algorithms to objectively quantify food intake during weight loss. Dr. Thomas works closely with an interdisciplinary team of researchers in medicine, physiology, nutrition, and computer science to translate mathematical models of human body weight regulation into applications that improve health
