My previous research background focused on the skin blood flow responses to heat stress, chronic passive heat exposure and cardiovascular adaptation, and post-intervention (exercise and acute heat stress) hemodynamic responses. These lines of inquiry spurred my interest in the potential for environmental stressors to improve cardiometabolic health. I am currently interested in understanding the mechanisms of autonomic and vascular dysfunction in age-related diseases such as heart failure. Within this framework, I would like to explore therapeutic interventions that may improve cardiovascular and metabolic function in cardiovascular disease.
