Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My laboratory has two broad research themes.
The first research theme centers on investigating how the human vascular system adjusts and adapts to exercise and environmental stress in healthy and diseased populations.
The second research theme centers on investigating the vascular and functional maladaptations that accompany various diseases (e.g. hypertension, aging, peripheral arterial disease), in addition to identifying novel therapies that may mitigate such detrimental changes.
