Expertise: Coyle directs the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education's Human Performance Laboratory, and his research focuses on the metabolic and cardiovascular factors that limit aerobic exercise performance. He is expert in the nutritional needs of active people during exercise, especially regarding their carbohydrate, fat and fluid requirements. Furthermore, he has developed technology to measure maximal neuromuscular power output over a few seconds. A decline in an athlete's maximal power output may be a sign of overtraining.

Esbelle M Jowers

Esbelle M Jowers

Research Assistant Professor (Affiliated), Department of Kinesiology and Health Education, College of Education
ejowers@austin.utexas.edu
+1 512 232 6027

Expertise: Dr. Jowers directs two major grant projects, including the Texas Initiatives for Children's Activity & Nutrition (I-CAN!) project, and the Walk Texas! Project. Texas I-CAN! is an obesity prevention project that aims to increase both physical activity and healthy eating in elementary school children. This project is currently funded through the National Institutes of Health/ Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center for Child Development.The goal is to train elementary school teachers to incorporate physical activity into their academic lessons daily and to evaluate the corresponding physical activity changes and academic impact on the participating children. This is a 5-year project that will recruit 30 elementary schools within Central Texas. Dr. Jowers was part of the creation and refinement of this program since 2001 and has extensive experience working with children, elementary school teachers, and independent school districts. Walk Texas! is funded by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS)/Texas Diabetes Council/Program to provide diabetes prevention and technical assistance/expertise to state-funded community diabetes prevention projects. Additionally, Dr. Jowers manages the online reporting system, termed the Program Management and Tracking System (PMATS), for the Texas Department of State and Health Services. This system tracks clinical outcomes across various programs (physical activity, nutrition, diabetes self management) to determine the impact of the programs on diabetes prevention and control across the state of Texas.
