Dimitar Stanev

Dimitar Stanev received his Diploma and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras (Greece) in 2014 and 2018 respectively. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Biorobotics Laboratory (BioRob) in the Institute of Bioengineering of École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. His research focuses mostly on aspects related to musculoskeletal modelling and simulation, muscle redundancy, proprioception and locomotion, knee mechanics, and finite element. Since 2014, he has participated in several research and development projects funded by the European Commission and the Swiss government. He is a proponent of the open science movement with a contribution to the OpenSim project, the development of open access models and simulation methods. In 2019 he has been named an inaugural OpenSim Fellow of the NIH National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR).
