Dr Florentina Hettinga


University of Essex

Florentina is a Lecturer at the Centre of Sport and Exercise Science of the School of Biological Sciences of the University of Essex, where she leads the Sports Performance and Fatigue Research Unit. She was board member of the Dutch Association of Human Movement Sciences (2010-2013) and organised several national and international symposia. Her research combines the basic tenets of sport science: biomechanics, physiology and psychology, a powerful combination to explore problems related to human movement. She is particularly fascinated by the concept of ‘pacing’: how do athletes/exercisers regulate their exercise intensities, when and why do they decide to invest their energy, how do they respond to opponents?
