Current Research

Research interests are centered on the influence of nutrition, physical activity, and physical inactivity on the metabolic and molecular regulation of the integration of fat, carbohydrate, and protein metabolism in human skeletal muscle in health and disease.

Current projects are utilizing in vivo stable isotopic tracer techniques, measures of whole body calorimetry and composition, hyperinsulinaemic glucose clamps, ex vivo muscle biopsy analyses, exercise training, and limb immobilisation to investigate the effect of manipulating skeletal muscle carnitine and/or lipid content on insulin sensitivity, fat oxidation, protein turnover, energy expenditure, and exercise performance.
