It's time for another edition of the Q&A interviews with TOS Fellows! This is the perfect opportunity to get to know leaders in the obesity field a little better and learn more about their personal lives outside of work. Here are some questions and answers from our interview with TOS Fellow Simone V. Gill, PhD, FTOS, Assistant Professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy at BU School of Medicine.
Q: Please tell us about your current work and your professional developmental trajectory.
A: The focus of my current work is to examine how obesity affects motor function in children and adults. I am particularly interested in how massive weight loss following bariatric surgery influences motor performance linked to increased fall risks.
Q: What advice do you have for today's junior obesity researchers?
A: I think that being open to collaborating with others is very important.
Q: What aspects of obesity research are the most exciting to you right now?
A: The connection between motor and cognitive function after massive weight loss is exciting to me right now.
Q: What are your favorite things to do when you're not at work?
A: I enjoy spending time with my family and exercising.
