Personal information

Hi, I am Stephan van der Zwaard, an assistant professor in data science and exercise physiology. 

I have always been fascinated by exercise physiology and understanding how humans improve their physical performance.

I was first inspired when I attended a physical testing session of the former Jumbo-Visma speed skating team and saw the exceptional performance of speed skaters after years of training.

With my background in sports, physiology and data science, I am a researcher that aims to unravel how humans adapt to training and improve their exercise tolerance and physical performance.
