Stella Lucia Volpe

Professor and Department Head

I research the effects of exercise and diet with respect to obesity and diabetes prevention. I do so with either environmental changes, exercise and diet interventions, or mineral supplementation. My research also includes studying fitness variables of athletes of all levels and ages, in particular, energy expenditure and substrate utilization.
