    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Godino is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health at UCSD. He received his PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Cambridge. His research was conducted within the MRC Epidemiology Unit and focused on the effects of brief personalized information on objectively measured physical activity. He then completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics of Aging Training Program at the Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health. His research was conducted within the Welch Center for Prevention, Epidemiology, and Clinical Research and focused on age-related decline in physical function and its associated disease burden. Dr. Godino is currently a member of the Center for Wireless and Population Health Systems and serves as the Director of Research and Applied Technology for the Exercise and Physical Activity Resource Center, both of which are based in the California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technology’s Qualcomm Institute. The majority of Dr. Godino’s research focuses on the development, conduct, and evaluation of complex interventions that utilize mobile and wearable technology (e.g., smart phones, accelerometers, and heart rate monitors) to promote healthy changes in physical activity, sedentary behavior, diet, and sleep for the primary and secondary prevention of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. He is also actively engaged in the development and evaluation of on- and off-body sensors that measure various components of human physiology and behavior.
