Title:Human-machine interaction and neurorehabilitation
Abstract: My research interest is in human-machine interaction. I enjoy investigating how humans interact with their environment and with each other. With my group, we develop new technical tools for this purpose, and take all opportunities to use our acquired knowledge and devices in clinical applications. My talk will highlight some of our projects, such as how understanding the process of learning of physical interactions in humans can improve neurorehabilitation technologies, or how we use robotic systems to investigate brain development in prematurely born babies at risk of cerebral palsy.
