Dr. Schaeffer received her B.A. (2010) in Integrative Biology from the University of California Berkeley, her M.Sc. (2013) in Exercise Science from McGill University, and most recently her Ph.D. (2018) in Rehabilitation Sciences from the University of British Columbia.
She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Cardiopulmonary Exercise Physiology Laboratory at the University of British Columbia where she is researching the mechanisms of dyspnoea (breathlessness) and exercise intolerance in patients with interstitial lung disease. She hopes to use this information to develop non-pharmacological strategies to improve patient outcomes from pulmonary rehabilitation.
