University of Calgary

Kevin Boldt is a doctoral student (Vanier scholar) at the University of Calgary studying under Dr. Walter Herzog. His research is focused on evaluating how the heart adapts to exercise and ways to maximize this adaptation. Kevin is a CSEP-Clinical Exercise Physiologist and CSEP-High Performance Specialist. He will undertake post-doctoral studies with Stu Phillips in 2020-2021. Publications Manuscripts (n=8 published, n=2 Submitted, n=4 Under review): • Boldt, K. R., Han, S. Joumaa, V., & Herzog, W.
