About me & Contact

Hi, I am Philip X. FUCHS or 阿立老師, Asst. Professor in sports biomechanics, National Taiwan Normal University.

Please check out my activities in...


My primary fields include biomechanical movement analyses, research methodology, and the evaluation of sports equipment/technologies. In my new position, there are plenty of new opportunities regarding the supervision of students and application for funds including international joint research. If you are a committed student, a researcher, or a developer of sports equipment/technologies, please consult the collaboration section for more information about options that may be interesting to you.


I obtained a doctoral degree in 'Sport and Exercise Science' at the University of Salzburg (Austria) and a Ph.D. in 'Methods, Models and Technologies' at the University of Cassino e Lazio Meridionale (Italy). My doctoral studies focused on movement analyses and training science (Salzburg) and performance testing and device assessment (Cassino).

Previous work experience includes positions as a Post-Doc conducting scientific research as well as R&D in collaboration with a Taiwanese company (01/2021 - 01/2023), as a Project Coordinator of the EU-funded 'AMiD' research project supervising activities of 13 institutions across Europe and being responsible for the successful implementation of the project (01/2018 - 12/2020), and as a Project Assistant in the 'WINNER' EU project contributing to quality control (09/2015 - 02/2017) as well as an athletic trainer for national elite youth rowers and seniors in Austria for many years (athletes' greatest achievements included the qualification for the Olympics and multiple participations in European and World championships).


I love science but, even more, I appreciate its practical benefits in application. Getting the edge in practice thanks to better know-how is what fascinates and motivates me - and what often is perceived to be missing in research. I would even call it one of my strengths to comprehend the relevance, scope, and effects of a specific theoretical finding on the practical application in the real world.


Thanks for dropping in and enjoy your stay!
