Background and activities
Bjarne Martens Nes is researcher at K.G. Jebsen Center for Exercise in Medicine, Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging at Faculty of Medicine, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). He has a Master degree in Human Movement Science (2008) and PhD in Clinical Medicine from NTNU and is currently leading the Epidemiological group within the center. Research interests are physical activity, fitness and health at the population level.
