Research Focus:

  • Impact of dietary supplements and dietary modification on markers of health and performance
  • Impact of dietary or exercise interventions on metabolic/oxidative stress induced by calorie dense feedings
  • Methods to mitigate physiological effects of stressors in high stress occupations (e.g., firefighters)
