Carolina Vila-Chã received a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Sports Science and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Porto, Portugal. From 2007-2010, she has been a guest researcher at the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction, Aalborg University, Denmark. Since 2012 she has been adjunct professor at the Sports Department of the Polytechnic Institute of Guarda, Portugal and researcher at Research Center in Sports, Health and Human Development (CIDESD), Portugal.
Her research is focused on the assessment of neuromuscular adaptations to training by means of advanced EMG techniques. Her scientific interests also include exploration of neuromuscular alterations induced by aging, muscle fatigue, delayed muscle onset soreness and their impact on motor control.
Recently, she has been developing I&D projects on physical activity and healthy aging. Within these areas, she has several peer-review publications journals and conference papers/abstracts
