Hello, it's me, Philip.
I am employed as EU Project Coordinator at the University of Salzburg where I did a Ph.D. in 'Sport and Exercise Science'. Currently, I am pursuing a second Ph.D. in 'Methods, Models and Technologies' at the University of Cassino e Lazio Meridionale. For 2.5 years, I conducted research for the EU-project 'WINNER' and contributed to the quality control. Now, I coordinate the EU-project 'AMiD' that kicked-off in 01/2018. Hereby, my duty is to monitor the implementation of the project and to coordinate the activities of the 6 participating universities from different countries, each one collaborating with associated partner institutions. These projects address Dual Career (combining education and sports) whereas my Ph.D.s 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 scope and effects of a specific theoretical finding and to deliver 'applicable theory' with practical benefits. This is certainly what gave and still gives me, as a trainer and practitioner, the edge in high performance training and martial arts.
