The majority of my research focuses on exercise neuroscience. I have published both applied and basic research on how the nervous system responds to acute and chronic activity or lack thereof. Within the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation I often collaborate with Drs David Behm, Jeannette Byrne, Fabien Basset, Scott Mackinnon and Kevin Power.
Currently, I am also collaborating with Dr. Guang Sun's lab in the Faculty of Medicine to determine the effects of exercise on obesity and with Drs Kevin Power and Jon Power at the National Research Council Canada on how the nervous system responds to cold exposure.
I have presented my research throughout Canada, the United States and Europe.
