Background and activities

Professor with the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science. 

Managing director at the Centre for Elite Sports Research.

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 top coach education program.

I am additionally head of research and development at the Norwegian Olympic Sports Center (Olympiatoppen), and thereby work on a daily basis with experts, coaches and athletes and to optimize the interaction between research and “best practice”.
