Jesse is an assistant professor in the Department of Population and Public Health Sciences at the University of Southern California. His research focuses on integrating multiomic data to understand the molecular mechanisms linking endocrine and metabolism disrupting chemicals with complex diseases such as type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Jesse obtained his PhD in the Integrative Physiology department at the University of Colorado Boulder. During his PhD, he performed a variety of interventional and observational human research studies examining factors related to glucose metabolism and cardiorespiratory fitness. During his post-doc at USC, Jesse’s research was focused on using metabolomic measures to understand the biological mechanisms underlying the relationship between exposure to persistent organic chemicals and susceptibility to Type 2 diabetes in children and young adults.
