I am an Assistant Professor and Director of the Integrative Neurophysiology Laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University (CSU).
I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports and Exercise Science and Master’s Degrees in Sports and Exercise Science and Physical Therapy from the German Sports University. I received my Ph.D. with summa cum laude, in Exercise Physiology and Neurophysiology from the University of Constance, Germany.
I moved to Colorado in 2003 and started my scientific research on muscle fatigue in young and old healthy people. After working on this topic for some years and becoming an expert in fatigue I was approached by neurologists and the Multiple Sclerosis community to support the research on fatigue and walking impairments in MS which are main symptoms of this disease. My work is exciting and I am convinced that the research findings coming from my lab will have a strong impact on the quality of life of patients with MS.
