In cooperation with Syn Schmitt, the director of the Institute for Modelling and Simulation of Biomechanical Systems, we have just submitted a proposal to the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a 3-year project on trunk biomechanics. Fingers crossed.
On December 17th I will give a presentation about my current research as part of the mid-term evaluation for my postdoctoral lecture qualification (Habilitation). It will be live from 1:30pm.
The German Research Foundation granted a 3-year project for a collaboration with the Dynamic Locomotion Group at MPI-IS in Stuttgart. The hiring is almost completed, updates to follow soon.
