BIO

I have worked for 10 years as a researcher focusing on elite sports performances, by investigating integrative physiology and biomechanics, the effects of strength and endurance training, as well as the utilization of new technology to gain further understanding of these aspects in real-life environments. This work has been done in close collaboration with experts, coaches and athletes to optimize the interaction between research and “best practice” – in particular by improving the endurance training of XC skiers.
