As an integrative physiologist, my research is rooted in cardiovascular and exercise physiology and focuses on pressure, perfusion, and metabolic regulation of the brain.
My line of research falls in two parallel tracks: 1) a spin-up track which is focused on space and aviation physiology including investigating effects of spaceflight on the human bodyand developing countermeasure to maintain human health during long-term spaceflight and extraterrestial exploration 2) a spin-down track which is focused on medical device and technology development, and applying knowledge gained in space for patients on Earth.
