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).
Importantly, I would like to investigate the role of exercise training, nutrition, nutraceutical supplementation, and sleep to mitigate the consequences of aging, disease, and environmental stressors.
In July 2019 I am set to begin a postdoctoral fellowship in the Thermal and Vascular Physiology Laboratory at the Institute of Exercise and Environmental Medicine at Texas Health Presbyterian with an appointment in the Internal Medicine Department of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
I previously perform research in the Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory as a University Graduate Fellow in the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology at the University of Delaware.
