Research

Carol is a National Heart Foundation Research Fellow. Her research interests have spanned cardiac and vascular physiology, particularly dysfunction in type 2 diabetes. Current projects explore the interaction between autonomic nervous inputs to the heart and intrinsic pacemaker signalling in heart rate regulation.
