He has accomplished a throughout understanding of the principles of gravitation and human blood pressure regulation, e.g. cardiovascular reflexes and vasoactive hormonal activation during graded lower body negative pressure and the use of basal indicator technique in hemodynamic measurements. Further, he is participating as co-investigator in the CARD and SMASH experiment performed on the International Space Station (ISS) in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The objective is to elucidate hemodynamics in astronauts exposed to chronic weightlessness
