Research Interests
Dr. Kuennen’s research line examines basic and applied aspects of environmental and occupational physiology. Much of his work utilizes a specialized environmental chamber from the Darwin Chambers Company ®. Located in the Human Biomechanics and Physiology Laboratory, this chamber allows him to expose willing study participants to extremes of temperature, humidity, and altitude while they perform work and/or exercise. In addition to systems-level physiology variables, he examines blood, saliva, and urinary markers of gastrointestinal barrier permeability and the associated immune response.
