Research Interests

My research experience includes metabolic changes with weight loss, resting and exercise energy expenditure, environmental influences on physical activity, and functional limitations associated with obesity. My current research interests include functional fitness deficits with obesity and the role of weight loss and exercise in improving functional fitness, the effect of indoor and outdoor exercise on mood and cognition, and exercise science pedagogy.
