Short CV Prof. Dr. E (Bert) Otten

 

As a biophysicist Bert Otten studies the movement control of humans at the Center of Human Movement Sciences in Groningen. He wrote his thesis in Leiden, entitled “Vision and Jaw Mechanism in the Cichlid Fish Haplochromis elegans”, which was recognized  with a “cum laude”  and the national “Kok” award for originality. He was a guest scientist at Harvard University during six summers, at the departments of functional morphology and bio-engineering and wrote 115 international scientific publications, mainly in the fields of biomechanics and movement control. He holds two patents on human body extensions. Presently he supervises 10 PhD students.
