Current Research Interests:
Professor Arciero's research interests include the influence of nutritional and physical activity intervention on energy metabolism, body composition, glucose tolerance and cardiovascular disease risk in healthy and diseased populations. Professor Arciero obtains both internal and external funding for his research and regularly collaborates and publishes with students on various research topics. At present, his primary focus is evaluating the effectiveness of different macronutrient intakes and exercise training interventions on body composition, energy metabolism, markers of cardiovascular risk and cognitive function adults of all ages. Currently, Professor Arciero is collaborating with other experts in the field on a two year study examining the effects of an interactive exergame on exercise behavior, neuropscyhological function and physiological outcomes in independent, community-dwelling adults. Professor Arciero looks to follow this study up with one examining the same outcomes in younger, middle school aged populations.
Professor Arciero enjoys spending much of his time with his wife Karen, the laboratory coordinator in the exercise science department at Skidmore and his three wonderful sons, Nicholas, Noah and Aidan.
