Prof. Dr. ir. Herman van der Kooij, (1970) received his Phd with honors (cum laude) in 2000 and is from 2010 full professor in Biomechatronics and Rehabilitation Technology at the Department of Biomechanical Engineering at the University of Twente (0.8 fte), and Delft University of Technology (0.2fte), the Netherlands. His expertise and interests are in the field of human motor control, adaptation, and learning, rehabilitation robots, diagnostic, and assistive robotics, virtual reality, rehabilitation medicine, and neuro-computational modeling. He has published over 70 journal publications in the area of biomechatronics and human motor control. He has directed more than € 12 million in research, from which he gained expertise in the management of (inter)national medium-scale projects. He was awarded the prestigious personal Dutch VIDI and VICI grants in 2001 and 2015 respectively. He is associate editor of IEEE TBME and IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters, member of IEEE EMBS technical committee of Biorobotics, and was member of several scientific program committees in the field of rehabilitation robotics, bio robotics, and assistive devices. He is member of the program committee of the Duch IMDI core on Neurocontrol, and of the NeuroSipe program. He is the coordinator of the FP7 project Symbitron
