Get to know Dr. Ghosh


Much of my previous research has involved investigating the effects of exercise, aging, and spaceflight on vascular function. However, I also have a background in strength and conditioning. Now, as part of the teaching faculty, my hope is to impart the knowledge I have amassed in exercise physiology and strength & conditioning to the next generations.
