Full CV

Dr. Kinsey joined the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in September of 2015 as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Nutrition Sciences, associated with the UAB Obesity Training Program and the UAB Nutrition Obesity Research Center. Dr. Kinsey received her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at Skidmore College and earned her Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology from Florida State University. Her dissertation work focused on the influence of nighttime protein intake on fat metabolism in obese men. During her postdoctoral work, Dr. Kinsey will focus on behavioral interventions for obesity prevention and treatment in African American families.
