Dr Ramos is a Lecturer in Exercise Science and Clinical Exercise Physiology at Flinders University, and an Honorary Research Fellow at The University of Queensland. Her main research area involves understanding the role of exercise in the prevention, treatment, and management of metabolic syndrome and its individual traditional (i.e. lipid profile, hyperglycaemia, hypertension, and central obesity) novel risk factors (i.e. vascular dysfunction, arterial stiffness, autonomic dysfunction, pancreatic beta cell function) that significantly increases a person’s risk of heart disease, stroke and other neurological disorders. Her research is also focused on the translation of experimental trials into a real-world workplace setting and the interaction of different exercise and medication dosages to optimise health. She is also currently actively investigating how to optimally prevent falls in people with Parkinson’s disease in collaboration with Parkinson’s SA, SALHN, and College of Science and Engineering (Flinders University).
