Liikuntatieteiden maisteri

Phone number:0294 282 885

I am a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology and a Senior lecturer in Sports and Health Promotion. In addition, I am studying the effects of physical exercise on biological aging (as a PhD student). My main teaching area is biology of physical activity, exercise physiology and sports coaching and fitness testing. I am also involved in the teacher teams in other courses provided for the sports instructor students and partly also for physiotherapy students. Additionally, I participate in the guidance of the field practice and supervision of the students’ Bachelor theses. I am responsible for the Arcada’s fitness testing laboratory which I utilize in teaching in various ways. In addition to physical activity and sports, I am also interested in health promotion and well-being (e.g. recovery, sleep, nutrition, psychological well-being), how we can apply technological solutions in health, well-being and sports as well as e-learning.
