Mengxi is passionate about investigating nutrition as a modifiable factor for promoting healthy eating and the overall well-being of cancer survivors and the general population. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Epidemiology, she leads research that assesses the role of diet and lifestyle, gut microbiome, and metabolome in colorectal cancer development and survivorship, leveraging population-based cohort studies. Mengxi graduated from the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy with a PhD in Nutrition Epidemiology and Data Science. Her doctoral research was centered around translating nutrition evidence into policy interventions for cancer prevention in the United States. With a passion for making research practical and actionable, she also underwent clinically focused dietetic training at Brigham and Women's Hospital and has been a Registered Dietitian since 2018.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
