Completed Post-Doctoral Fellowship
My post-doctoral work in the Riddell Lab focused on exercise in people with type 1 diabetes.
My research focused on the efficacy of carbohydrate feeding and insulin modifications for the prevention of hypoglycemia during prolonged aerobic exercise in individuals with type 1 diabetes.
For my MSc, I examined the accuracy of wrist-worn activity monitors during different forms of physical activity in individuals with and without type 1 diabetes.
Completed Undergraduate Honours Thesis
For my honours thesis, I investigated dose de-escalation of novel therapeutic targets utilizing somatostatin receptor type 2 (SSTR2) antagonists at four differing doses in healthy and diabetic rodent models.
My research focused on finding effective strategies to reduce blood glucose fluctuations (i.e. hypoglycemia) during exercise and in recovery in individuals with type 1 diabetes.
My research for my MSc focused on the effects of SGLT-2 inhibitors in conjunction with exercise in a rat model of type 1 diabetes.
For my MSc, I investigated the effects of a somatostatin receptor type 2 (SSTR2) antagonist on glucagon response under conditions of insulin-induced hypoglycemia in both healthy and diabetic rat models.
