Christian's research interests include exercise and cardiometabolic adaptations to dietary nitrate (specifically beetroot juice). The effects of obesity on dietary nitrate bioavailability.

Any special interests, hobbies, or fun facts?

I enjoy doing just about anything that involves me being outside. I am an avid and competitive runner/cyclist. I also enjoy a good strenuous hike, and gardening.
