Research Interests:
My research interests include the role of exercise and obesity on risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and metabolic syndrome. More specifically, my research topics are focused on the effects of exercise interventions on blood lipid and lipoprotein metabolism related to atherosclerotic events in overweight and obese individuals or patients with CVD by examining the responses of pro-inflammatory biomarkers including monocyte, macrophage, Lp(a), CRP, and oxidized LDL (ox-LDL) along with its biochemical mediators such as lipoxygenase and myeloperoxidase.
