Dr. Smith is interested in the impact of lifestyle interventions, such as diet and exercise, on neurocognitive function and mood. He has also published multiple studies examining the relationship between cardiovascular disease, major depressive disorder, and neurocognitive outcomes, preoperative predictors of postoperative delirium, the impact of cardiothoracic interventions on neurocognitive outcomes, and the relationship between patterns of dietary intake and cardiovascular outcomes. He is also interested in the role of modifiable risk factors, such as physical inactivity and psychosocial stress, on clinical outcomes in solid organ transplant recipients.
