My formative years as an exercise physiologist were founded upon defining the typical physiological profile for athletes in different sporting activities, utilizing functional evaluations such as oxygen uptake, oxygen delivery and utilization, vascular function, and neuromuscular activation. In this period, I also studied the impact of neuromuscular disorders on neuromuscular activation in response to various stimuli. Currently, as an integrative physiologist, my research is focused on 1) understanding the mechanism leading to vascular dysfunction occurring as a consequence of aging, 2) assessing the efficacy of various treatment options on vascular physiology in young and old, in both health and disease, and 3) evaluating the cardiovascular consequences of preeclampsia post childbirth.
