BiographyI am a former Vice Chancellor's Research Fellow (VCRF) and, since 2021, a Senior Adjunct Lecturer at Queensland University of Technology. As a follow-up of my research at QUT (2015–2018), I am currently leading an Austrian Science Fund (FWF)-funded clinical research project on ‘Dietary Nitrate, Vascular Function, and Inflammation’ (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT04584372). Based on my achievements in research and academic teaching, I have attained my habilitation (Venis Docendi) for the subject 'Sports Nutrition with a Specific Focus on Physiological Aspects' at the University of Vienna, Austria, in 2021.
My overall area of research is applied physiology at the intersection of nutrition, exercise, and human health. I aim to gain a better understanding of the physiological and health effects of nutrition and exercise in humans, from a molecular to a functional level. A specific focus is on skeletal muscle, the immune system, and cross-tissue interactions. Inspired by the concept of ‘translational physiology’, my goal is to assess the efficacy of lifestyle interventions to promote, preserve, and restore physiological function and health in different human population groups.
The outcome of my research includes twenty-four peer-reviewed scientific publications, twenty of which were published in top-25% (‘Q1’) journals in the respective subject category. My work continues to involve close collaborations with colleagues at QUT.
