Background and activities

Post doctor since 2016 in the field of exercise physiology and biomechanics. Currently involved in technique in cycling.

Previously I have a masters degree in human movement science, also from NTNU. Before I started my Phd in 2012 I work some time as a lecturer at NTNU.


  • Post doctor at SENTIF
  • Test leader cycling in mid-norway.

Current research projects:

  • Oxygen consumption in specific local muscles during cyclic movements.
  • Muscle oxygen saturation during isolated upper body work.
