Overview

I am first and foremost a physical activity researcher, and have completed studies on the interaction between exercise and a variety of chronic diseases using a range of methodologies (clinical trials, epidemiology, etc.). My current research focuses on the concept of energy balance, which is the relationship between how many calories a person eats, how many they burn, and how they store excess calories in their body.
