I am the Head of Neuromechanics and Biorobotics Lab 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. In our recent research we train human subjects to perform full-body activities in environments where we can disturb various ecological parameters. By investigating changes in the motion, electrical activities of the muscles and their stiffness we are developing models of full-body motor learning that help to elucidate the underlying neural mechanisms by which the brain iteratively modifies muscle activations during learning so that appropriate forces and viscoelastic impedance are created to ensure the stability.
We are using these models to design biologically plausible solutions for a broad spectrum of robotic systems such as industrial robots, humanoids, exoskeletons and rehabilitation devices.
I am currently involved in three larger European projects; in H2020 SPEXOR as the coordinator, and in FP7 CoDyCo and H2020 AnDy as the principal investigator. I am also a member of the Management Committee and a Work Group leader of a COST Action Wearable Robots for Augmentation, Assistance or Substitution of Human Motor Functions.
