About Professor Carmichael
Ryanne Carmichael holds a doctorate degree in Exercise Physiology from Springfield College. Her research interests include performance enhancement in endurance sports like triathlon, cycling, and cyclocross. Dr. Carmichael’s research interests developed not only through study in exercise physiology, but also through her experience as a practitioner; she competes in triathlon and coaches the sport. She hopes her research exploring performance issues specific to endurance sports will inspire and engage her students to begin to investigate areas of their own interest within the field of Exercise Science.
At PSU, Dr. Carmichael directs the Human Performance Laboratory and teaches in the Exercise and Sport Physiology program of the Health and Human Performance Department.
