On March 23, 2018, thanks be to God almighty, I successfully defended my thesis. On that day, years of hard work was presented, evaluated and commended. The relief I felt was like none other I had ever experienced. To give you some perspectives on the work I’ve done, you may read some of my publications here:
In a nutshell I looked at basal lactate in persons living with diabetes and in our track and field athletes. Lactate was established as a fitness and wellness assessment tool. A metabolic profile of our population was also established which can have impactful applications.
Despite the challenges of conducting research here in Jamaica, I am excited to enter the world of full-time research. This project proved to me that this is what I want to do, a career in research and academia.
Wish me luck!
