Research Interest: We seeks to educate professionals how to design and implement exercise training and nutrition programs for healthy, active people and competitive athletes with the goal of optimizing human physical performance. The approach is to innovate and integrate scientific evidence in the areas of exercise physiology, metabolism, and sport nutrition. Furthermore, students are taught to quantitatively assess the components of human endurance and power performances using appropriate techniques. Proper nutrition promotes optimal physiological adaptation to training and thus dietary strategies are designed to the unique requirements of people with specific needs.
