Research Interests

Our laboratory is interested in understanding how cells use nutrients and how excess nutrient flux, as occurs in obesity, and diabetes triggers insulin resistance and inflammatory responses. We are also interested in how intrinsic exercise capacity and exercise training can alter metabolism. We use metabolomics profiling and other 'omics technologies to profile metabolism in animals and humans.
