My research program involves a combination of human, animal, and cell culture approaches to tackle questions related to (i) the regulation of glucose metabolism;(ii) molecular biology and pathophysiology of insulin resistance and sarcopenia; and (iii) effects of exercise on glucose and lipid metabolism at the whole-body and cellular levels. I am an active educator and research mentor, and supervise clinical and research fellows, residents, and graduate students.
