Claudine is associate professor at the Center of Human Movement Science of the University Medical Center Groningen. Her research focus on the understanding of mechanisms underlying healthy ageing and age-related movement disorders, with an emphasis on gait and postural control. She uses concepts and tools from coordination dynamics, a theoretical approach that explicates variability as an inherent property of human movement and, in doing so, it provides an expedient window into the coordination of system components as well as its stable and adaptive features. Central to her research is the quest for factors like coordination, cognition, and energy cost, and their interaction in optimising and adapting postural and gait control.
