Dr. Gabriel Zieff is a Killam and Canadian Institutes of Health Research Postdoctoral Fellow. He received his BS in Health and Exercise Sciences from Skidmore College, and both his Master’s in Exercise Physiology and PhD in Human Movement Sciences from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Gabriel’s research interests encompass the effects of lifestyle factors on cardiometabolic and mental health with an emphasis on the role of psychological stress as a contributing factor to disease states.
Gabriel’s work at UBC examines how exercise may help promote healthy regulation of biological stress networks and improve mental health in adults who have experienced early life trauma. Gabriel is co-supervised by Dr. Eli Puterman in the Fitness, Aging, and Stress Lab in the UBC School of Kinesiology.
Welcome Gabe! We are so excited to work with you!
