About Mattias Folkesson

Mattias Folkesson is a doctoral student and lecturer at the unit of Sport Sceinces at the University of Örebro and has a shared responsibility for Sports Science and Coaching Programme, 180 credits.

His PhD aims to highlight human adaptation to exercise / physical activity. Focus lies within skeletal muscle adaptation at cellular and molecular level.

Teaching takes place primarily in sports physiology, anatomy, biomechanics, principles of training and quantitative methods.

In addition, Mattias performes different types of exercise physiology tests on both elite athletes and amateurs.
