Dr. Pomeroy is an associate research scientist with a background in physiology and behavioral epidemiology. His current research areas include obesity and diabetes treatment and prevention, reducing health disparities in minority and underserved populations. Dr. Pomeroy has expertise using objective and subjective measures to assess sleep, physical activity, and eating behavior.
Dr. Pomeroy is currently conducting objective assessments of physical activity and sleep behavior in people with Bardet-Biedl Syndrome who are part of the Clinical Registry Investigating Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (CRIBBS). The goal of this research is to better understand the role that physical activity and sleep play in the health and quality of life of people with Bardet-Biedl Syndrome. Dr. Pomeroy is the Principle Investigator of the Accelerometry Data Analysis Core for the Lifestyle Interventions For Expectant Moms (LIFE-Moms) Consortium of clinical trials. Dr. Pomeroy is a Co-Principle Investigator of the BabyAct Trial, a multilevel childhood obesity prevention intervention conducted in Women Infant and Children (WIC) clinics in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Pomeroy received a Master's degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Health and Exercise Psychology from Arizona State University and a PhD in Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Wellness from Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus. Prior to his work in Marshfield, Dr. Pomeroy was a postdoctoral fellow at the Phoenix Epidemiology and Clinical Research Branch, part of the NIDDK Intramural Research Program.
