His primary research interest involves the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and near infrared spectroscopy to non-invasively study neuromuscular metabolism in humans.
He specializes in Anatomy, Physiology, and Exercise Science.
His dissertation research examined the effects of aging, dehydration, and oral creatine supplementation on skeletal muscle metabolism using phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy. While a graduate student in Boston, Dr. Smith worked as a research assistant at the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Massachusetts.
