Dr. Pomeroy obtained his PhD at Arizona State University in 2009 while working at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, part of the Intramural Research Program of the NIH. His dissertation focused on evaluating objective measures of physical activity and sleep. He is now a post-doctoral fellow at NIDDK where his work has focused on the associations between physical activity, sleep, and metabolic health.

Dr. Pomeroy specializes in lifestyle interventions aimed at preventing or treating type 2 diabetes and related disorders, as well as translating those interventions for communities at high risk. Dr. Pomeroy’s research has also included mechanistic studies of behavioral responses to short-term overfeeding, as well as observational studies of associations between physical activity during pregnancy and anthropometric and metabolic impacts in early life of the offspring.  He hopes to expand his work to other clinical settings including hypertension, chronic pain, and pulmonary disease.
