Research Interest: 
Cardiovascular function, physical activity and aging. Specifically, my laboratory is working to understand the mechanisms influenced by regular physical activity that impact the functioning of our aging hearts. The mechanisms that influence the age-related decline in physical activity is also a larege area of study for my laboratory. Lastly, my laboratory is investigating the influence of orthopedic factors (i.e., chronic ankle instability) that reduce lifelong physical activity levels causing the development of cardiac dysfuction and other hypokinetic disease characteristics.
