  • Benjamin Chrisinger

    Benjamin Chrisinger

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Bio An urban planner by training, Dr. Chrisinger is committed to research that helps us understand relationships between the built environment and health, especially health disparities. Currently, he is coordinating a research partnership between Dr. Abby King’s Citizen Science Initiative with stakeholders in Camden, New Jersey to assess the city's healthy corner store initiatives. His previous research examined efforts to open new supermarkets in underserved areas ("food deserts") by considering development processes, store-level outcomes, and community and customer experiences. While continuing food environment research and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly known as food stamps), Dr. Chrisinger is also initiating a new line of inquiry that uses physiological data to better understand neighborhood perceptions.

    Dr. Chrisinger completed his doctoral training in City and Regional Planning at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a former fellow with the Emerging Leaders in Science and Society (ELISS) Program at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Graduate Research Fellow with the National Science Foundation. He received undergraduate and graduate degrees in Urban and Environmental Planning from the University of Virginia.

  • Liana Del Gobbo

    Liana Del Gobbo

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Bio I am a Nutritional Epidemiologist passionate about understanding the role of diet in disease risk.

    During my training, I've gained extensive experience in epidemiologic research methods, including the design and analysis of large-scale population-based cohorts and meta-analysis, and organized a large international consortium examining the role of fatty acid biomarkers and incident cardiometabolic outcomes.

    My interest in 'big data' projects has extended to my current work at Stanford, where I am excited to be diving into the world of gene-environment interactions and precision health initiatives.
