On Wednesday Oct 30 2019 I had the honour to give the ‘Karel Luyben Lecture’ for the general public at the Royal Institution of London. The Royal Institution is a very special place where remarkable people have researched, lectured and lived, such as Michael Faraday and David Attenborough. It was an amazing experience to give a lecture in this place about my favorite topic: ‘pushing the boundaries of human movement’. The lecture brings together my PhD work on speed skating and my current work on age-related mobility impairments. Newton’s second law, simple dynamic models, complex dynamic models, instrumented speed skates, live human motion capture, and ageing suits, in short a dynamic show!
The lecture is broadcast on the channel of the Royal Institution:
