Bio

In 2005 I obtained a PhD in Sciences at the University of Antwerp studying the biomechanical determinants of the development of bipedal gait in humans. Currently I work as coordinator of the M²OCEAN lab combining research activities with teaching responsibilities in Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Sciences.

My research projects focus on the neuromechanical control of walking and on the importance of balance and postural control during the development and maturation of gait in children. While performing my research activities I gained experience in 3D gait analysis (data collection using Vicon, AMTI, Aurion Zerowire EMG and footscan®) and  biomechanical modelling (Vicon Bodybuilder, Matlab).
