Dr. Kunlin Wei is a professor in School of Psychological and Cognitive Sciences at Peking University. He obtained his MS degrees in Kinesiology and Electrical Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University in year 2002 and 2003 and his Ph.D degree in Kinesiology (motor control) in year 2007, working with Dr. Dagmar Sternad. He then joined Dr Konrad Koerding’s lab as a postdoc fellow in Northwestern University and Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago between 2007 and 2009. His major research area is sensorimotor control and his interests include motor control and learning, sensory integration, human-machine interaction, computational modeling of behavior, movement biomechanics and motor rehabilitation.
