Research

My research interests include the effects of breast cancer therapies, especially chemotherapy, on cardiovascular function, and the role of exercise in mitigating cardiovascular toxicity. My current work at the University of Alberta will continue in the field of cardio-oncology and will focus on the development of MRI techniques to characterize the effects of cancer therapy on the heart, vasculature, and skeletal muscle and their role in whole body deconditioning.
