My long-term research goals are to explore and understand the relationship between micro and macronutrients and various biological and physiological stresses (e.g. CVD, hypertension, osteoporosis, etc.) primarily in human clinical models. I am also interested in examining how some physiological stresses (e.g. physical activity, exercise) may act synergistically and paradoxically with proper nutrition/nutrients to attenuate degenerative disease progression. Personally, I enjoy weight lifting and all aspects of physical fitness in general. I also probably know more quotes to more movies than you do, and like to write creatively when I have the time.
