Research Interests

  • The function of multiple organ systems (specifically, the cardiovascular, respiratory, and circulatory systems) during exercise
  • Understanding the factors that limit exercise capacity in health and disease (with a specific focus on chronic heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD))
  • Investigating novel pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies on microvascular oxygenation deficits in CHF and COPD
  • The effects of smoking on systemic vascular dysfunction in COPD
