Research Interests

My research interests focus on identifying how physical activity can help young people maintain or regain cardiometabolic health and have a healthy weight. Parameter optimization (i.e., duration, frequency, intensity and positioning) is a major concern, especially given today’s sedentary lifestyles. Another research interest is evaluating the effectiveness of recommendations for modifiable lifestyle factors of young people with or without pathology.
