Kelli King is currently a PhD student at the Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit at the University of Ottawa. She earned her Master of Science degree from the University of New Mexico in Exercise Science where she studied the physiological and cellular responses to heat, cold, and hypoxic exposures. Her recent research interests focus on the metabolic contributions during thermal stressors and the impact of thermal stress on cellular function. Kelli’s doctoral thesis will examine the cellular mechanisms of autophagy and cold shock proteins in young and older adults in response to acute and chronic exposures to cold water immersion.
