Research interests

Human Exercise and Environmental Physiology.

My work in this discipline covers a continuum ranging from preparing elite athletes for sporting competition in hot/hot-humid environments, to understanding how extreme enviromental conditions such as heat stress associated with climate change and heat waves might impact vulnerable people such as the elderly. This discipline considers the effects on the cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and muscular systems as well as biomarkers of illness.
