About Jort Veen

I’m a PhD student in Sport Science. In 2016 I obtained my MSc in Sport Science at the University of Worcester UK with a specialisation in postactivation and pacing in cyclists. After my graduation I worked as a sessional lecturer in exercise physiology and biomechanics at this same university.

In 2018 I started my PhD in physical activity and aging as part of the Newbreed  Successful Aging Program co-funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (MSCA COFUND). 

My research focuses on the influence of physical activity and nutrition on physical function, markers inflammation and metabolic risk factors in older aged people.
