I am interested in examining the physiological changes that occur:
- in human aging,
- in the presence of cardiometabolic disease(s), and
- with acute and chronic environmental stressors (e.g., heat, altitude, microgravity).
I plan to study the role of lifestyle factors such as exercise training, nutrition, nutraceutical supplementation, and sleep to mitigate the consequences of aging, cardiometabolic disease(s), and environmental stressors.
I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the Thermal and Vascular Physiology Laboratory at the Institute of Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian with an appointment in the Department of Internal Medicine of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
I previously performed research in the Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory as a Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology at the University of Delaware, and in the Laboratory for Human Performance in the Department of Health and Sport Sciences at Salisbury University.
