D.C. Lee, PhD
Assistant Professor of Kinesiology, Iowa State University

My primary research interests focus on physical activity epidemiology, especially on the independent and combined effects of aerobic and resistance exercise on various health outcomes in adults. Over the past 4 years, I have been actively involved in >40 publications in peer-reviewed medical journals. These studies include the associations of physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular strength, dietary pattern, and alcohol consumption with various health outcomes, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, obesity, falling, depression, and cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality.
