Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in Exercise Nutrition from The University of Western Ontario (UWO) in 2010. My previous degrees were completed at the University of Windsor (Master’s in 2006) and McMaster University (Bachelor of Kinesiology in 2004).
Prior to joining Laurier, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in dietetics and human nutrition at McGill University in Montréal under the supervision of Dr. Hope Weiler (2010-2012), and was an assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education at the University of Lethbridge in Southern Alberta (2012-2014).
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
The main focus of my research program is the effect of exercise intensity on the regulation of energy intake. I am also interested in the potential acute and chronic health benefits of different exercise modalities such as high-intensity interval training and whole-body vibration. Further research interests involve the effect of vitamin D on skeletal muscle function.
Student Opportunities / Supervising
I am willing to supervise both undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of exercise physiology and exercise nutrition.
