Areas of Research

My research interests focus on the role of sports nutrition vis a vis athletic performance and body composition. My recent investigations have examined the role of high protein diets on health and body composition in recreational bodybuilders. Furthermore, I am one of the very first scientists to study the role of training and nutrition in stand-up paddling (SUP) athletes. In addition, I organize at least 6 conferences/workshops each year for the International Society of Sports Nutrition. If you love sports nutrition science, then the ISSN is the conference to attend.

Current Research Project
