PhD Title: The role of mechanical resonance in physiological finger tremor
Supervisors: Dr. Martin Lakie, Dr Raymond Reynolds
After obtaining her BSc in Human Movement Sciences at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands), and a year of being a board member of her sorority, Carlijn started two research masters in Human Movement Sciences (University of Groningen, The Netherlands) – one focussing on rehabilitation and one on general motor control. She finished her MSc degree combining her two research areas in a graduation project on muscle synergies while performing a simulated stone knapping task. Carlijn started her PhD on underlying mechanisms of physiological tremor in November 2010 at the University of Birmingham.
