    Charles Dumke, PhD, is a full professor in the department of health and human performance at the University of Montana, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses. He has taught courses in exercise physiology for over 15 years, first at Appalachian State University and then at the University of Montana. He earned his doctoral degree in kinesiology from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. His areas of interest in exercise science are energy expenditure, fuel utilization, economy of movement, mechanisms of mitochondrial adaptation, and diabetes. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles on these topics. Dumke is a fellow of the ACSM and serves on several national and regional committees.

    In his free time, Dumke enjoys competing in triathlons, biking, running, taking on building projects with little know-how, and coaching his son in ball sports. He resides in Missoula, Montana, with his wife, Shannon; son, Carter; and dog, Rastro.
