Eric Besenius is a sports scientist (M.Sc. Sports Science in Elite Sports) who specialises in exercise physiology. He started his career as a research assistant at the Sports Medicine Research Laboratory of the Luxembourg Institute of Health in 2014. In 2019, he assumed a role as a sports scientist at the CHL Sports Clinic, primarily concentrating on performance diagnostics.
