Background and activities
I am associate professor and research coordinator at NTNU’s Centre for Elite Sports Research, Department of Neuroscience. Most of my research focus on improving the understanding of elite sports performances, mainly 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. I also teach these topics in BA and MA courses focusing on training and performance, as well as the in top coach education program. I am additionally head of research and development at the Norwegian Olympic Sports Center, Region Mid-Norway and thereby work on a daily basis with coaches and athletes and to optimize the interaction between research and “best practice”.
