Research Interests:

I am interested in the integrative physiology of vascular function in health and disease. Specifically, I am interested in how the immune system, adipose tissue and blood vessels interact to mediate vascular dysfunction with hypertension, aging and metabolic abnormalities. I am also interested in how physical activity influences these systems to promote vascular health.
