Assistant Professor of Exercise Physiology

Why I Teach

"This is a career that will always provide me with a challenge, keep life exciting, and help me make a positive impact on many lives. There are always new people to meet and know, new information to teach, and new questions to answer through research."

 

Keeping it Fresh in the Classroom

"I try to stay up-to-date with the latest of everything...news, events, sports, etc...so I always have something I can relate to everybody. I try to help students relate the material we cover in class to their future careers to help them realize how they will be regarded as leaders in their field someday."

 

Research: the Future of Athletics

"I am studying the effects of grape skin polyphenols (antioxidants) on human performance. I believe our study will be one of the most comprehensive performed in this field. Other projects underway focus on the electrical activity of muscles during running, and how training programs can improve performance."
