Background and activities
I am a human movement scientist and part of the research group on Geriatrics, Movement and Stroke (GeMS) at Department of Neuroscience, NTNU. I am presently working on validation and analysis of activity measurements in children and I am a part of the group performing the multicentre RCT “Does botulinum toxin A (BoNT-A) make walking easier in children with cerebral palsy?”
Teaching at the bachelor and master education in Human Movement Science.
PhD in Health Science with focus on motor control and physical performance in patients with fibromyalgia
Fields of interest
Neuromuscular control, musculoskeletal disorders, exercise physiology
Measurements and analysis of human movements including; measurements of muscle activity (EMG), oxygen consumption and kinematics (3D motion capture, accelerometer)
2008-2014: PhD in Health Science, NTNU
2005-2008: Master in Human Movement Science, NTNU
2003-2005: Bachelor in Sport and Human Movement Science, NTNU
2014-: Lecturer, Department of Neuroscience, NTNU
2008-2014: PhD candidate, Department of Human Movement Science, NTNU
2008-2009: FYSAK-coordinator, Orkdal kommune
