Short bio

I am a transdisciplinary scientist with a strong clinical background from my initial training as a physical therapist. I am working at the cross-road between skeletal muscle (respiratory and locomotor) physiology, exercise physiology, bioengineering, and rehabilitation sciences. Methodological and technological developments for the characterization of muscle structure and function hold an important place in my work. I have also interests in data science, reproducible research, and teaching.

Exercise and daily physical activity in neuromuscular disorders and other clinical populations

Investigating the effect of exercise-based interventions on neuromuscular function. Muscle activation is one of the most important mechanisms for maintaining muscle mass and function. We are also studying the impact of neuromuscular disorders on daily physical activity according to pathologies and clinical parameters.
