I obtained a BSc, MSc, and PhD degree in Biomechanical Engineering (all cum laude) at the University of Twente. My background is originally in human balance control. After obtaining my PhD degree I left academia for several years, and worked at a start-up company on computer vision and motion tracking.
My current position has a focus on healthcare robotics and AI. The aim of my research is to have a humanoid robot learn to provide a helping hand to a caregiver, such as a nurse, or a care receiver, such as an elderly person. This involves physical human-robot interaction, motion control, and computer vision. Also see our lab website.
I am a Comenius Teaching Fellow, for introducing Agile principles in thesis project guidance.
