Biography

Rasmus Valtonen received his MHSc degree in Medical and Wellness Technology in the University of Oulu in 2015. Currently, he is working as a doctoral student at the Center for Environmental and Respiratory Health Research (CERH) in a experimental research program assessing cardiovascular responses to exercise and cold among coronary artery disease patients.
