Research Team

Shilpa Dogra

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.

Carley O’Neill

Current Role: PhD student

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

Andrea Linares

Current Role: Masters Student (2nd year)

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.

Nikola Goncin

Current Role: Masters Student (2nd year)

Bachelor of Science: University Of Illinois Champaign-Urbana Alumnus

Current Research: Behavioural compensation in response to participation in variable intensity exercise among older adults.


Ryan Wight

Current Role: Masters Student

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.
