I am a cardiovascular physiologist with interests in how exercise and diet impact cardiovascular health. Many of my studies involve sophisticated equipment to measure various physiological variables (e.g. ultrasound for vascular and cardiac blood flow, near infrared spectroscopy sensors for muscle oxygenation, intravenous catheters for blood sampling, etc.). Recent studies mine include investigations into the impact of dietary sodium on cardiovascular health, food substitutions and arterial function, and blood pressure control during static muscle contraction. I am always recruiting volunteer research assistants and research participants. Please contact me if you are interested.


Research Projects

Volunteer Research Assistants Wanted

I am always looking for volunteer research assistants who are interested in cardiovascular health and physiology. Volunteer research assistants working with me are routinely expected to recruit, screen, and schedule participants. Research assistants would also be expected to show strong initiative to independently learn research skills and protocols and have time to commit to the research process. With my advisement, it would be encouraged that you become the lead researcher on at least one study. Students who work on my projects get a one-on-one learning experience well beyond what a typical student receives. If interested contact me via email.
