Prof. Franklin studied human physiology and was awarded a Ph.D. in 2005 from the Department of Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University (Canada) in Ted Milner's group. He worked as a researcher at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute (Kyoto, Japan) from 1999 to 2006 in the laboratory of Mitsuo Kawato. He then spent 3 years as a post-doctoral fellow in Daniel Wolpert's group in the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge (U.K.). In 2010 he was awarded a Wellcome Trust RCD Fellowship and started the Neuromechanics Group at the University of Cambridge. In 2016, he moved to TUM as the Professor for Neuromuscular Diagnostics.

Eva-Maria studied Sport Sciences at Bielefeld University and received her Ph.D in Human Performance from Jacobs University Bremen in 2014. After the completion of her doctoral studies, Eva temporarily took on a Lecture Position and Rostock University. In 2015 she was awarded a competitive research fellowship at The University of Queensland and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the UQ School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences in Timothy Carroll’s Lab. Since October 2020 Eva is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow (Eurotech Postdoc Fellowship program) at TUM. Eva is interested in age-related changes in motor learning and control as well as in the interactions between cognitive and motor functioning across the lifespan.
Justinas Cesonis studied Engineering at the University of Cambridge, graduating with a Masters degree. He moved to TUM in 2016 and is working on a PhD investigating computational models of motor control. His specific interests include feedback modulation and control of human reaching movement.

Clara Günter received her Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology in 2019. Her master's thesis focussed on sensory feedback by electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves in amputees. She moved to TUM in March 2019 and is working on human motor learning, specifically related to different feedback modalities in the field of prosthetics.
After his studies of Sport and Performance (BSc) at the German Sport University in Cologne, Jonathan Orschiedt worked as the Head of Athletic Training & Rehabilitation in the Youth Academy of the 1. FC Kaiserslautern. After graduating with a Master’s degree in Sport and Exercise Science from TUM in 2019, he started his PhD at the Chair of Neuromuscular Diagnostics. His master’s thesis and his research interest focuses on the influence of the learning context on the control strategies of bimanual reaching movements.
Ziyu Chen received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering respectively from Tsinghua University and the University of Tokyo. He joined in 2019 and works at Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) as part of the Geriatronics Project. His R&D interests include kinematics, kinetics, and dynamic modeling of the human neuro-musculoskeletal system.
Yiming Liu received his B.Sc. degree in Automation Technology from Wuhan University (China) in 2016. In 2020, he received his M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the Technical University of Munich. His Master research focused on machine learning, control theory and robotics. Since October 2020, he joined the Chair of Neuromuscular Diagnostics as a PhD candidate, working on the control mechanism of human grasping movements.
Mao Ono joined the lab in 2019 and is responsible for office management and administration. She works Monday to Friday mornings in room M214.
