    Research Interests

    My research interests focus on identifying how physical activity can help young people maintain or regain healthy weight or cardiometabolic health. My research program focuses on three axes and specifically for pediatric reality and obesity, interventions, physiological profile and physical activity knowledge-related, as well as evaluation tools.

    AXIS 1 – Optimization of interventions with exercise-nutrition interaction

    AXIS 2 – Characterization of specific physiological profile and activity

    AXIS 3 - Improving the condition and physical activity diagnostic
    Parameter optimization (i.e., duration, frequency, intensity and positioning) is a major concern, especially given today’s sedentary lifestyles. Another research interest is evaluating the effectiveness of recommendations for modifiable lifestyle factors of young people with or without pathology.

    Research Topics

    • Exercise physiology
    • Obesity
    • Type 1 and type 2 diabetes
    • Development and evaluation of physical activty interventions
    • Evaluation of tools
