loprinDr. Paul Loprinzi

Associate Professor

Department of Health, Exercise Science and Recreation Management






Academic Profile:

I completed my doctoral studies in Exercise Science at Oregon State University, with undergraduate (exercise/physical activity; community health) and graduate (exercise science) degrees at Portland State University. Building upon this background, including exercise psychology and physical activity epidemiology, my current epidemiological research examines the effects of exercise on cognition and mortality.  My current experimental work examines the effects of exercise on memory function.

Personal Profile:

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Kristina Loprinzi, NP, and my four young children, Ryker (11 y), Kiplin (8 y), Jovie (7 y) and Hartley (3 y). I also enjoy jogging, which I usually do 4-5 days per week.
