Dr. Friedlander has broad research experience in the areas of metabolism, environmental physiology, and using physical activity to promote healthy aging. This course is a product of her dedication to physiology, passion for teaching and love of the outdoors. She hopes you enjoy taking the course as much as she enjoyed making it.

Corey Dysick, BA, Secondary Instructor and Teaching Assistant Aspiring physiologist and glorified guinea pig. Corey has loved the journey of creating stories about science, and hopes his experience will help students fall in love with physiology. Corey is the utility player on the EnvPhyz team, involved in content creation, storytelling, video editing, interfacing with EnvPhyz guests, and dreaming of the next big story to tell about science. A graduate of Stanford University, he will be attending graduate school to further pursue his passion for physiology and education.

Carlos Seligo, Ph.D., Academic Technology Specialist As videographer and editor, Carlos was responsible for translating Anne and Corey's adventures into video stories. Carlos came to Stanford in 1997 as a postdoc and has been here ever since. His diverse set of talents has given the EnvPhyz team the technological boost they desperately needed.
