Dr Christian Lorenzen - Nat Sch Exercise Science (Faculty of Health Sciences)

Fully accredited supervisor - Can supervise as principal supervisor


My research focus is on exercise for people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Currently I am investigating the response of blood glucose and microcirculation to whole body vibration exercise. I am also supervising HDR students examining training loads for team sports, and motion analysis of the Olympic and kettlebell snatch lifts.
