Trevor is an exercise physiologist who is interested in how physical activity can influence a person's health and physiological function across the lifespan. He primarily investigates how factors such as chronic disease, mental stress, and environmental stressors impact the cardiovascular system, and how exercise may mitigate any negative impacts. Trevor also looks at what changes occur in the cardiovascular system of elite athletes and under extreme exercise conditions. Trevor's teaching areas include physiology, motor learning, nutrition, and statistics.
