My research interests use advance skeletal imaging techniques to explore musculoskeletal adaptations associated with growth and development, ageing, fracture, sports participation and nutritional intervention. Most of my research uses high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) and dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) imaging to explore changes in skeletal health over time or following intervention (nutrition or physical activity). Recently I have worked on the Calgary Vitamin D Study and I am exploring relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S) through a collaboration with the Canadian Sports Institute.
