Presentation

Mes travaux s'intègrent dans le cadre général liant Formation - Recherche et Valorisation afin de parcourir au mieux le continuum recherche fondamentale - recherche appliquée. Mes recherches portent sur la compréhension de la dynamique du système neuromusculosquelettique et des facteurs individuels influençant les chargements mécaniques des tissus biologiques, en lien avec le matériel sportif, le risque de blessure ou la pathologie. Je développe des modèles biomécaniques se basant sur des données issues de captures du mouvement (cinématique, EMG, forces externes) et des modèles numériques multi-échelles de structures musculosquelettiques. Mes travaux s’ancrent dans le monde socio-économique au travers de projets en collaborations étroites avec des entreprises.
