research overview

  • Dr. Allen's research is centered around an integrative understanding of the factors influencing physical activity levels and how physical activity levels influence health and fitness outcomes.

  • My previous research experience centered on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying skeletal muscle plasticity in response to activity, injury, obesity, and stress. I continue to review manuscripts and write my own manuscripts on these topics. Since starting my new position in 2012 in the Department of Psychology, I have developed some new research interests, centering on the effects of various factors such as technology, drug use, and injury on physical activity levels.
