Current Research

My research focuses on understanding how the brain regulates oxygen delivery during different physiological stressors. To achieve this, I plan to conduct three studies examining the effects of high altitude, changes in hematocrit, and exercise. These studies aim to uncover the mechanisms behind cerebral oxygen regulation under various conditions, providing comprehensive insights into how the brain maintains its oxygen levels.
