Peter Beek: Professor for Coordination Dynamics

Peter Beek

Professor for Coordination Dynamics

Peter's interests cover a broad range of topics, e.g., bimanual coordination, perception-action coupling, and perceptual-motor learning. He scouts for dynamical principles in movement patterns and motor control.

Sjoerd Bruijn: Post-Doc

Sjoerd Bruijn

Assistant Professor

Sjoerd studies cortical activity during walking using EEG and TMS. His goal is to understand how the brain is involved in stabilizing gait. His fundamental approach finds applications in age-related balance problems.

Andreas Daffertshofer: Professor for Neural Dynamics (PI)

Andreas Daffertshofer

Professor for Neural Dynamics (PI)

Andreas is interested in motor-related neuronal systems and its formal assessment in terms of nonlinear dynamics. Specific focus is on neuronal synchronization during perceptual-motor tasks.

Nadia Dominici: Associate Professor

Nadia Dominici

Associate Professor

Nadia studies the neural mechanisms underlying the emergence of walking in children. She seeks to unravel detailed neuro-muscular mechanisms underlying this process, in both healthy development and pathology, especially cerebral palsy.

Lieke Peper: Associate Professor

Lieke Peper

Associate Professor

Lieke's research focuses on the dynamics of interlimb coordination and sensorimotor performance. She is interested in the theoretical underpinnings as well as practical applications in clinical settings.

Melvyn Roerdink: Associate Professor

Melvyn Roerdink

Assistant Professor

Melvyn investigates sensorimotor synchronization and the use of external rhythms in clinical gait rehabilitation. His aim is to integrate dynamical systems and information-processing concepts, using the methodology of auditory- and visuo-motor synchronization.

John Stins: Associate Professor

John Stins

Assistant Professor

John focuses on the interface of experimental psychology and motor control. He studies how cognition, emotion, personality, and psychopathology impact movement, with an emphasis on regulating balance.
