CV

After completing high school, my interest in sports biomechanics and human movement in general, lead me to the University of Ljubljana, Facuty of Sport where I graduated in 2007 with a thesis titled “Comparison of kinematic parameters of the sprint start and block acceleration”. First years after graduation I worked at Biomechanics lab at the Institute of Sport - Faculty of Sport in Ljubljana. As a lab assistant I was conducting and analyzing results of biomechanical and physiological studies mostly carried out on top Slovenian athletes. In February 2014 I joined the team of Jan Babič at the Jozef Stefan Institute - Department of Automation, Biocybernetics and Robotics in Ljubljana. During the last three years I was mainly involved in the EU project CoDyCo (Whole-body Compliant Dynamical Contacts in Cognitive Humanoids) and since this year in an EU project An.Dy (Advancing Anticipatory Behaviors in Dyadic Human-Robot Collaboration). In the CoDyCo project, I was conducting human behavior experiments, focused on human balance in a balance challenging conditions. My main reserch interest is in human motor control of movement, especially balance control and motor adaptations to dynamically changing environment.
