I’m currently an assistant professor of exercise physiology in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education. I teach a variety of exercise science courses in both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as serve as the Graduate Program Director for Specializations in Exercise Physiology. 

My research team’s focus is on determining the link between obesity-induced lipotoxicity and the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus and atherosclerosis. The overall goal of our lab is to provide both undergraduate and graduate students unique learning and training experiences that will prepare them for graduate and professional programs in exercise and biomedical-related sciences.
