Background and activities
PhD Candidate at the Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG), Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging. My research topic is cardiorespiratory fitness and mental health in middle-aged and older individuals. My project use data from the Generation100 study and data from the Nord-Trøndelag Health Survey.
I have a Master's degree in exercise physiology from NTNU where I studied the effect of maximal strength training on bone health in young women.
