Thématique de recherche

Mes thématiques de recherche s'articulent autour de l'étude de la composition corporelle, du métabolisme énergétique et des réponses endocriniennes en lien avec l'exercice physique de différentes intensités, que ce soit dans un objectif de prévention primaire ou tertiaire de santé ou dans l'optimisation du suivi du sportif. Un intérêt tout particulier est porté à la population féminine.

Mots clés

Métabolisme énergétique, composition corporelle, hormones, niveau d'activité physique, femme
