Background and activities
PhD Candidate at the Institute of Public Health and Nursing. My research topic physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness and mental health in middle-aged and older individuals. My project use data from the Generation100 study carried out at K. G. Jebsen Center for Exercise in Medicine 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.
2010 - 2012 Masters degree in Exercise Physiology and Sports Science, NTNU
2007 - 2010 Bachelors degree in Human Movement Science, NTNU
Previous work experience
