My research interests include investigating how lifestyle interventions like diet and exercise can improve cardiovascular health. Currently, I am researching how sodium is sensed in the brain and how excess sodium impacts cardiovascular health. Outside of the lab I delight in the gospel of Jesus Christ and enjoy biking, golfing, and playing board games with family and friends.
