Research projects

1 January 2021 until 31 January 2027

I teach exercise physiology usually with a focus on health, where my experience as a Registered Physiotherapist (RPT) is an important asset. I am also resposible for two of the three courses of our one-year master's programme. I really enjoy teaching and I have been appointed as a distinguished university teacher by the pedagogical qualification board. To improve and delevop courses and programmes is really something I enjoy, and right now my colleagues and I are developing our "Exercise Physiology Programme".
