About me

I am a physiotherapist, specialist in pediatrics and doctoral student since 2019. My projects are about different aspects of the para-sport Frame Running for individuals with cerebral palsy, with focus on both health and performance.

In addition to cerebral palsy, I have interest and experience in working with several other diagnosis that include the neuromuscular diseases and Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC).

Research description

Physical activity, exercise physiology and physical self-perception in individuals with cerebral palsy.
