Research on Energy, Activity & Aging
We are a group of researchers dedicated to understanding changes in physical activity and energy expenditure with aging, and how they contribute to changes in physical and cognitive health.
Accelerometers have revolutionized the field of physical activity research, allowing a better understanding of quantities, patterns, and trends of daily physical activity and their effects on functional aging.
Energy expenditure changes dramatically with aging, from resting to maximal exertion. These changes are reflective of underlying biological and physiological processes that affect healthy longevity.
