Current Research Interests:
Primary interest is in the area of human skeletal muscle function and fatigue. In particular, her work examines the mechanisms of fatigue and how these may vary depending upon age, gender, chronic health status, and habitual physical activity level. A secondary interest is an examination of the influence that fatigue has on functional capacity.
