My research interests are to understand the autonomic and vascular mechanisms underlying exercise intolerance and the development of cardiovascular disease in clinical populations or in populations at increased risk for incident cardiovascular disease. My previous research background focused on various topics, including autonomic function, arterial stiffness, and post-exercise hypotension in populations such as obesity, Down Syndrome, and aging. Expanding upon my previous research interests, my current research focus is on further understanding the vascular and autonomic mechanisms underlying exercise intolerance in aging and age-related diseases, including heart failure.
