BSc and MSc Biology, Mathematical / Theoretical Specialization, Wageningen University (Netherlands)

Curriculum Vitae

Current and future projects
My research interests are in computer simulation and biomechanical analysis of human movement, with the ultimate aim to positively impact on the lives of individuals with impaired movement due to aging, injury or disease. My research has a focus on balance control and the efficacy of AFOs in rehabilitation, rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries, and balance and falls in the elderly.
