Research interests

  • Exercise, muscle injury and inflammation. I am interested in the basic biology of muscle injury, and the effects of treatments such as cold water immersion, icing, anti-inflammatory/antioxidant supplements and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
  • Recovery from exercise. I am interested in gaining a better understanding of the recovery process from an integrative physiology perspective. In particular, I am interested in
  1. comparing metabolic, hormonal and inflammatory responses during recovery from different forms of exercise loading and environmental conditions
  2. strategies to monitor physiological and psychological aspects of fatigue/recovery after exercise to determine when athletes are ready to return to training/competition.
  • Exercise, nutrition, immune function, aging and disease. I am interested in the effects of exercise and nutrition on immune function, and the implications for healthy aging and treating chronic diseases.
