Research Interests:

I have a strong passion for sports, having worked extensively in football, swimming, rugby, and basketball. Recently, I’ve shifted my focus to explore the impact of aging on physiological changes, with the goal of optimizing physiotherapy for the elderly. Despite this, I enjoy staying updated on various research topics, casually delving into areas like dance, artificial intelligence and expertise acquisition.
