Bio/Research

The general focus of my research program is the integration of diet and exercise in mediating metabolic processes in health and chronic disease.

I am interested in understanding the physiological roles and regulation of adipose tissue and skeletal muscle-derived cytokines in mediating metabolic processes in the body. I am particularly interested in the mechanisms by which dietary factors and/or exercise modulate various cytokines and inflammatory mediators implicated in insulin resistance, a key characteristic of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes.
