Luc Selen received a BSc in Applied Physics from Hogeschool Enschede and a MSc in Human Movement Sciences from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, with a specialisation in “coordination, learning and development”. As a Research Assistant he was involved in projects on the control of trunk stability in health and disease. Under supervision of Jaap van Dieën and Peter Beek he started a PhD, investigating the role of joint impedance in attenuating the effects of neuromuscular noise on movement kinematics.
In the lab of Daniel Wolpert he is appointed as a Research Associate and funded by the Wellcome Trust. His main research interest is on how humans are able to interact effectively and efficiently with their environment, given internal and external noise.
