Full profile:

Sven hails from Dusseldorf, Germany, and conducted his PhD with Jens Frahm at the Max-Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry.

His current research interests are centered around action control, and how our brain controls movements. In addition, he is still puzzled how different kinds of neurostimulation might work.

He is a Professor in Motor Neuroscience at the Sobell Department for Motor Neuroscience and Movement Disorders, UCL, and Vice Chair of the Young Academy of Europe.
