My research interests revolve around oxygen transport limitations during exercise in age-related diseases. My doctoral research focused on cardiopulmonary limitations in patients with heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) and ultramarathon runners. My current research focuses on mechanisms of vascular dynsfunction in aging, cardiovascular disease, and physical inactivity.
