Jonathan Bennett

Post-Doc

Jon’s background (BS Biology, BS Psychology, MS Kinesiology) aims to build on the intersection of diet, exercise, and behavior on body composition and health. His research focuses on the application of multicompartment body composition modeling and its utility in a variety of medical settings as well as in athletes and across the lifespan. Jon’s PhD is in Nutritional Sciences; he moved to Hawaii with his cat, Milky, who retired from his career as a milkman to also pursue a PhD in dairy science.
