Dr. Patrick Forbes (P.)
- Position: PhD, Assistant Professor, Erasmus MC
- Lab Head in:
Dr. Forbes is the principal investigator of the “Sensorimotor Neuroscience and Biorobotics Lab” at the Department of Neuroscience within the Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. His research combines robotics, numerical simulation and neuroscience techniques to address fundamental questions regarding human sensorimotor control. Specific research interests include: i) physiological mechanisms underlying human balance control, and ii) vestibular sensory processing for posture, gaze and perception. This work has received funding from NWO (VENI, VIDI and Research Talent). Before establishing his lab at Erasmus, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow in neurophysiology at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) in Prof. Jean-Sebastien Blouin’s lab. This work was funded by the European Commission under the Marie Curie Fellowship program. Dr. Forbes completed his PhD in Biomechanical Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (Delft, The Netherlands) and completed his Masters and Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Canada).
