Alex Overbeek received his MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering and MSc degree in Systems and Control from the University of Twente in 2021. His master thesis focused on the fundamental limits of passive impedance control due to digitalization and flexibility, applied to the impedance reduction of rehabilitation robotics.
He is currently a PhD candidate at the Biomechanical Engineering department. Here, he is working on a new research line: humanoid robotics. His research aims to improve humanoid service robots, combining a wide set of fields in learning and interaction control.
