Personal profile

Research interests

Analysis of how human movement, movement coordiantion and their variability relate with performance, motor skills, skills acquisition and injury, carried out through conventional and dynamical systems approaches.

Integrated assessment of neuro-motor skills and motor learning/adaptation to understand injury mechanism and promote injury prevention strategies.

Biomechanics of (sports) movements (e.g. rugby, race walking, jumping, weightlifting) for performance evaluation and injury prevention.

Footwear biomechanics.

Functional assessment of human motion in clinics, ergonomics and sport.

Health technologies.
