Campus Champion

Focused on a career that combines her passion for exercise with the mechanics behind it, kinesiology graduate student Lindsey Taylor is already a winner. On Feb. 11 she was one of 25 presenters at the “Graduate Research: Making a Difference in New York Partnering with SUNY and CUNY” in Albany. Lindsey’s poster on high-intensity interval training synthesized the work she conducted with female athletes last semester. It’s also part of her thesis set for completion in May. When she’s not in the kinesiology lab, Lindsey can be found at local running races, training for the 55-kilometer Laugavegur Ultra Marathon in Iceland next summer.
