Dr. Glen Foster
UBC Okanagan Graduate Research Scholarship
Originally from Kelowna, Katherine left to complete her B.Sc. in Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, specializing in rehabilitation sciences. On her own time, she can be found in the gym, skiing, road biking, or working with various sports teams.
Katherine’s research includes applying blood flow restriction to the lower limbs to identify the response of the muscle metaboreflex during dynamic exercise. Specifically, looking at athletes during near maximal cycling to measure various cardiovascular changes at increasing workloads.
