I currently lead the “Biomechanical Motion Analysis and Creation (BioMAC)” group.

Humans are the most fascinating machines in the world. Their efficiency of movement is unmatched by other bipedals while their control system is noisy and redundant and their actuators (muscles) are not that efficient at all. I think that once we understand why we walk the way we do, we can greatly advance technologies such as robotics and prosthetics and orthotics, as well as improve other human movements in for example sports.
