Kasuen Mauldin, Ph.D., R.D. Assistant Professor. Dr. Mauldin received her Ph.D. in
Molecular and Biochemical Nutrition from University of California, Berkeley and completed
her dietetics training at University of California, San Francisco Medical Center. Dr.
Mauldin’s research background is in lipoprotein metabolism, and she conducts research
using dietary interventions in the prevention and treatment of metabolic diseases. In
addition to her interests in clinical research, she also aims to effectively teach
science curriculum in dietetics education. To this end she uses innovative teaching
strategies such as simulation technology in interprofessional education. Dr. Mauldin is
actively conducting research using and assessing simulation-based teaching in dietetics
