Dagmar Sternad is a Professor of Biology at Northeastern University, USA and the Director of the Action Lab.

Her research is focused on understanding how humans move, where her work has also created bridges to human-robot interaction and movement control in robots. More specifically, Dagmar’s research agenda focuses on single- and multi- joint human movements in perceptually specified tasks. Her lab pursues a three-pronged research strategy consisting of: (1) an empirical component with behavioral experiments on human subjects, (2) theoretical work which develops mathematical models for movement generation on the basis of coupled dynamical systems, and (3) brain imaging studies that investigate the cerebral activity accompanying movement.
