Research in our laboratory currently focuses on active aging and exercise for adults with asthma. We have state-of-the-art equipment to measure physiological changes in response to exercise, and collaborate with colleagues across campus to answer novel research questions.
If you are interested in joining the team, please contact me for information on current opportunities.
Masters of Health Science: University of Ontario Institute of Technology
Bachelor of Kinesiology with Honours: Acadia University
Certifications: CSEP-Certified Exercise Physiologist
Research Experience: My masters work assessed acute responses to high intensity interval exercise among adults with confirmed exercise induced bronchoconstriction.
Current Research: High Intensity Interval Training for Adults with and without Exercise-Induced Bronchoconstriction
Bachelor of Science: Mount Royal University
Research Experience : As an undergrad, I was interested in how the body responds to reductions in the partial pressure of oxygen (hypoxia). My training primarily revolved around the cardiovascular responses to normobaric and hypobaric hypoxia.
Current Research: Individual variability in cardiopulmonary responses to interval exercise.
Bachelor of Science: University Of Illinois Champaign-Urbana Alumnus
Current Research: Behavioural compensation in response to participation in variable intensity exercise among older adults.
Honours BSc. Kinesiology Co-op, Management Studies Minor: University of Waterloo
Current Research: A workplace physical activity program for cardiometabolic health among adults with diabetes.
Bachelor of Health Sciences: University of Ontario Institute of Technology
Current Research: Developing an evidence-informed application targeting physical activity among school-aged children.
Bachelor of Arts, Psychology, University of Waterloo
Current Research: Understanding the Constraints to Active Transportation among Older Adults Living in Cities
Previous Research Experience: From 2008–2018 I have worked for and been associated with the 3D Research: Driving Decisions with Data Lab at Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education; Department of Health Sciences. Prior to joining up with the research team at WLU, I worked as a Research Assistant in the Psychology Department at the University of Waterloo. My experience involves the management of various research projects. My background and interests include aging, vulnerable populations, mental health, cognition and memory, sensory impairment, health care and Big Data.
