Maximizing Access to Research Careers Program

Current Student Profiles

Jacob Montoya

I am a junior, exercise physiology major, from Denver, CO. My research interests include metabolism, performance, and rehabilitation. My current research looks at the effects of heart rate variability on lactate production and consumption. By studying heart rate variability I look to understand the effects of the autonomic nervous system on exercise. I hope to continue my education and receive my Ph.D. in Kinesiology or Exercise Physiology and eventually open my own performance clinic working with world class athletes.
