Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

Gerontology, Demography, Longitudinal study, Overweight and Body mass index are her primary areas of study. Her Gerontology research includes elements of Girl, Qualitative research, Ethnic group and Health indicator. Penny Gordon-Larsen combines subjects such as Weight gain and Odds with her study of Demography.

Her work deals with themes such as Adolescent health, Logistic regression, Marginal structural model and Odds ratio, which intersect with Longitudinal study. Her Overweight study is related to the wider topic of Obesity. The concepts of her Obesity study are interwoven with issues in Young adult, Cohort and Environmental health.

Her most cited work include:

  • Inequality in the Built Environment Underlies Key Health Disparities in Physical Activity and Obesity (1340 citations)
  • The nutrition transition: worldwide obesity dynamics and their determinants (1164 citations)
  • Determinants of Adolescent Physical Activity and Inactivity Patterns (830 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Penny Gordon-Larsen mostly deals with Gerontology, Demography, Obesity, Body mass index and Young adult. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cohort study, Cross-sectional study, Overweight, Socioeconomic status and Ethnic group. Penny Gordon-Larsen works mostly in the field of Demography, limiting it down to topics relating to Longitudinal study and, in certain cases, Odds ratio.

Her studies deal with areas such as Weight gain, Disease and Environmental health as well as Obesity. Penny Gordon-Larsen has included themes like Genetics, Genetic association and Risk factor in her Body mass index study. Her Young adult study combines topics in areas such as Artery, Incidence, Prospective cohort study, Life course approach and Pediatrics.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Gerontology (36.72%)
  • Demography (35.74%)
  • Obesity (32.79%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Demography (35.74%)
  • Obesity (32.79%)
  • Young adult (25.57%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Penny Gordon-Larsen mainly investigates Demography, Obesity, Young adult, Genetics and Body mass index. Her Demography research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Socioeconomic status, Odds, Diabetes risk and Confidence interval. Her Socioeconomic status research incorporates elements of American Community Survey, Regression analysis and Diet quality.

Her study looks at the intersection of Obesity and topics like Gerontology with Built environment. Her Young adult research integrates issues from Artery, Proportional hazards model, Disease and Cohort. Her Food science research extends to the thematically linked field of Body mass index.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide physical activity interactions in adiposity. A meta-analysis of 200,452 adults (211 citations)
  • Protein-altering variants associated with body mass index implicate pathways that control energy intake and expenditure in obesity (145 citations)
  • Rare and low-frequency coding variants alter human adult height (126 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Demography, Genome-wide association study, Obesity and Young adult. Her studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Odds ratio, Type 2 diabetes, Diabetes risk and Confidence interval. The Obesity study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Ecology, Human Microbiome Project, Gerontology and Gastrointestinal Microbiome.

Her work carried out in the field of Body mass index brings together such families of science as Chinese adults and Nutritional status. Her Gerontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hispanic population, Ethnically diverse, Adolescent health, Etiology and Cohort. The study incorporates disciplines such as Multivariate analysis, Hispanic latino, Community health and Self reported weight in addition to Young adult.
