Francesca Piacentini

Ph.D.


Diários de Treino.


Professora de ciências do desporto e exercício na Universidade de Roma “Foro Italico”. Possui doutoramento (Ph.D) em fisiologia humana realizado na Vrije Universiteit Brussel e Mestrado realizado na University of California Berkeley nos Estados Unidos. O seu principal domínio de investigação são os desportos de resistência e ultra-resistência, particularmente na monitorização do treino de modo prevenir o treino excessivo e não produtivo, estratégias de ritmo e prevenção de fadiga. A Professor Piacentini colabora com a Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB) no desenvolvimento de um sistema de monitorização online para prevenir o treino excessivo em atletas, que é actualmente um spinoff do VUB. È membro do Comité Científico do Colégio Europeu de Ciências do Desporto.
