I have a fairly productive scholarly collaboration with Drs. Brandon & Ina Shaw at the University of Zululand in South Africa. Over the past 10 years we have collaborated on research projects resulting in 30 peer reviewed journal articles and an equal number of scholarly presentations. The primary focus of our research endeavors has been the effects of resistance training on health including cardiovascular disease, asthma, COPD, and weight management. I have reviewed grant proposals and rated researchers for the South African National Research Foundation. I am also a reviewer for several journals in Africa.
