Research Interests: 
  • The exploration of the potential mechanisms for increased reactive species production during and after exercise.
  • The role of blood as governing factor of both oxidative stress and maintenance of oxidant-antioxidant homeostasis.
  • The potential influence of reactive species and redox agents (e.g., "antioxidants") on exercise-induced adaptations and health effects.
