Involved and leader of research projects investigating how muscle function should be measured among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as well as the importance of muscle function for this group of patients, e.g., investigating the relationship between different aspects of muscle function and daily life activities. My research also focuses on how exercise training, in specific resistance training, can be adapted to optimize its effects for the individual patient. Further research focuses on the implementation of evidence-based health promotion interventions and to facilitate the delivery of such services to people with COPD.
