Øyvind B. Sandbakk
Background and activities
Professor with the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science, Centre for Elite Sports Research.
My research aims to improve the understanding of sport performance, 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 Bachelor, Master and PhD courses, as well as the top coach education program.
