Jeune is a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Sciences. Her research interests include studying ways to improve health and nutrition outcomes among underrepresented children, adolescents, and young adults through nutrition education. Jeune’s past research focused on increasing fruit and vegetable knowledge and intake among predominantly Black adolescents using an urban vegetable garden as an intervention. She also conducted a USDA-funded nutrition education research intervention with Hispanic families to study parent-child interactions in this population during mealtimes. Recently, Jeune completed a project examining the relationship between interoception, self-regulation, eating styles, and weight status in college students.
