Jozef Stefan Institute
I am a research associate at “Jozef Stefan” Institute and an assistant professor at Faculty of Sport, University of Ljubljana. I received my Ph.D. in 2011 for the work on different altitude/hypoxic & hyperoxic training modalities and their effects on athletic performance. During 2013/2014 I was a Post-doctoral fellow at University of Cape Town, Faculty of Health Sciences Department of Human Biology, UCT/MRC Research Unit for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine.
