Research

I am an integrative human physiologist primarily focusing on cerebro-, cardiovascular, respiratory and neurophysiology, with applications in health (resting and imposed stressors such as exercise, mental and thermal) and in those with disease (diabetes, cardiovascular and chronic kidney disease).
