In this special 100th SoS episode, Chris and Cara chat with our very own podcast producer Alexandra Niclou. A PhD candidate at the University of Notre Dame, Alex studies the many facets of human energetics and physiological adaptations. In particular, her work focuses on brown fat activity variation in adults under different climatic and energetic conditions, exploring the metabolic cost of brown fat and how physical exercise influences its activity. Her dissertation work in Samoa is funded by NSF and the Wenner-Gren Foundation.
