Karin received her BSc and MSc in Human Movement Science in 2009 and 2010 respectively, at the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich, Switzerland. For her Master’s thesis, she investigated skeletal muscle strength and physical function in orthopedic knee patients at the Neuromuscular Research Laboratory of the Schulthess Clinic in Zürich, Switzerland. More specifically, Karin linked the patients’ isometric, isokinetic and isoinertial leg muscle strength to their gait performance. In 2014, Karin obtained her PhD in Human Movement Science from the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis in Nice, France. During her PhD, she investigated the neuromuscular adaptations during whole-body vibration exercise using electromyography recordings and specialized in electrophysiological signal processing.
