Jesse obtained his PhD in the Integrative Physiology department at the University of Colorado Boulder. During his PhD, he performed a variety of interventional and observational human research studies examining factors related to glucose metabolism and cardiorespiratory fitness. Jesse’s current research focuses on using metabolomic measures to understand the biological mechanisms underlying the relationship between exposure to persistent organic chemicals and susceptibility to Type 2 diabetes in children and young adults.
