About me & Contact

Hello, it's me, Philip.

Currently, I work as a Post-Doc researcher at the Department of Athletic Performance (National Taiwan Normal University, Taiwan). I am involved in a number of research projects, collaborate with companies, and help students in conducting scientific research. My main focus is on biomechanical movement analyses and currently on sensing systems in sports (e.g. local positioning tracking and pressure sensor insoles).

From 2018 to 2020, I was employed as Project Coordinator of the 'AMiD' EU project at the University of Salzburg. My task was to monitor the implementation of the project and to coordinate the activities of a core team of 6 participating universities from different countries, each one collaborating with partner institutions. Before, I conducted research for the 'WINNER' EU project and contributed to the quality control for 2.5 years. Both EU projects addressed the challenges in Dual Careers (combining education and sports).

I achieved 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). The diversity of fields in sports science is really something special and enjoyable.

 

I love science but, even more, I appreciate its practical benefits in application. Getting the edge in practice thanks to better know-how, that 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.
