Automation, Biocybernetics and Robotics
Jozef Stefan Institute
I am a Senior Researcher at "Jožef Stefan" Institute, Slovenia and an Associate Professor at Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School, Slovenia. I received my Ph.D. from Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University in Ljubljana examining the role of biarticular muscles in human locomotion. During the years 2006/2007 I was a visiting researcher at ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Japan. In November 2014 I was a visiting professor at The Institute for Intelligent Systems and Robotics, University of Pierre and Marie Curie in France.
My current research is particularly concerned with the understanding how human brain controls movement of the body. A main focus of my research is to understand how the central nervous system process sensory information and transfer them to motor commands. I am especially interested in robustness and adaptations of the movements to the changing environment
