Biography: 

Jeff was born and raised in North Vancouver, BC, and pursued his BSc degree in Kinesiology at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON. He joined an exercise physiology and muscle biochemistry laboratory, which sought to quantify the physiological benefits from various exercise training protocols. Thereafter he acquired his MSc degree from the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa, studying exercise and thermoregulatory physiology with the Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit. His research was aimed at investigating the physiological mechanisms underlying the human heat loss responses of cutaneous vasodilation and sweating, as well as determining to what extent factors such as aerobic fitness affect an individual’s ability to dissipate heat. Jeff has published in journals such as the Journal of Physiology, Physiological Reports, American Journal of Physiology: Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, and the Journal of Applied Physiology.
