Research Interests:

Students working in the UCCS Human Performance Laboratory study physiological responses to hypoxia (low oxygen). Our research focuses on cerebrovascular, cardiopulmonary, and neuromuscular adaptations to high altitude in collaboration with the University of Colorado Altitude Research Center on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Specifically, we are trying to answer the question "why is it so hard to exercise at altitude?" We believe that answering this question will lead to strategies for improving the health and performance people who live, work and travel to high altitude locations or suffer from cardiopulmonary diseases where oxygen availability and transport is limited (see:
