Postdoctoral Fellow working with Jack Rejeski in the Department of Health and Exercise Science and with Barbara Nicklas in the Department of Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine at the School of Medicine. The Wells Fargo program funds the recruitment of faculty whose research shows promise for
generating significant intellectual property and regionally-based
commercialization efforts as either start-up or spin-off companies.

physical activity while breaking up bouts of sustained sitting time.
