My research focus has been to study the physiological effects of exercise and diet on obesity and chronic lifestyle diseases. Recently my attention has been to explore novel physical activity modalities (such as whole body vibration exercise training) to help improve metabolic and musculoskeletal fitness in women following extreme weight loss (bariatric surgery).
