My research focuses on the use of ambulatory sensing for human motion analysis. This involves various types of kinematic and/or dynamic sensing. My main expertise is in the field of inertial measurement units, as the versatility of these sensors help us sense/estimate most relevant outcomes of human movement.

I am involved in the following research projects:

- Estimating kinetics directly from inertial measurement units (x-double-dot)

- Measuring and providing feedback to osteoarthritis patients for better quality of life (LoaD)

I am also affiliated with Movella, which helps to collaborate with industry and make research better applicable for real-world applications.
