Research Interests

My research focuses on vascular endothelial function and cardiovascular adaptations under the broad spectrum of exercise physiology. Within this umbrella of cardiovascular physiology, my interests are primarily focused on how alterations in shear stress impact vasodilatory capacity. The majority of my doctoral training focused on how alterations to the vascular shear rate profile can improve vascular function within the peripheral and cerebral circulation. The goal of my research is to understand how impairments or improvements within the vasculature relate to quality of life and functional capacity, and the underlying mechanisms that lead to improvements.
