Kim van Schooten is a postdoctoral fellow at NeuRA and conjoint senior lecturer at UNSW Medicine supported by the Human Frontier Science Program. She obtained her Ph.D. in 2014 from the faculty of Human Movement Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (the Netherlands). She was a Mitacs & Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research postdoctoral fellow at the faculty of Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology, Simon Fraser University and the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility, University of British Columbia (Canada). Her research focuses on balance control and fall risk in seniors. She is particularly interested in the underlying mechanisms of balance impairments, and methodologies for ambulatory monitoring of mobility using wearable sensors. Through a combination of experimental and epidemiological studies, she studies how people maintain and recover balance during daily-life activities, to improve our understanding of why falls occur and to reveal targets for the prevention of mobility impairments and falls.
