Graduate Student, Kinesiology (Affiliate)
My research interests cover a variety of topics in the field of exercise science, but mainly focus on effect of exercise on cardiovascular disease risk factors, improving treatment of patients with hyperlipidemia, the effects of exercise on cognitive function, and the improvement of the Exercise is Medicine initiative on college campuses. I am continuing to work with Dr. Pescatello on a systematic review of Genes that are associated with Blood Pressure (BP), the effect of exercise on BP, and the effects of pharmaceuticals on BP. Additionally, I recently applied for the “America Walks: Everybody Walks” micro-grant to collaborate between Kinesiology, InCHIP, Student Health Services and Student Recreation Services, to make walking on the UConn Campus as exercise more accessible to the surrounding community and student body. I recently coordinated a study to validate the Statin Myalgia Clinical Index V3 with 120 patients to determine if the index can distinguish between patients with confirmed statin myalgia and those who do not. My aim as a Graduate Affiliate of InCHIP is to continue the research in which I am currently engaged, as well as use the resources available to InCHIP affiliates to enhance my knowledge and quality of research.
