Biography

After obtaining his masters in Human Movement Sciences in 1984, DirkJan Veeger continued his studies in London, where he obtained his MSc in Ergonomics from University College London. 

Since 1986, DirkJan Veeger has been affiliated to the Department of Human Movement Sciences, where he received his PhD in 1992 on Biomechanics of Wheelchair Propulsion. From 2001 onward he combines this affiliation with a part-time position at Delft University of Technology where he was appointed as Professor of Musculoskeletal Mechanics at the Biomedical Engineering Department in 2009. In 2014 DirkJan was appointed as Professor of Biomechanics and Sports Engineering at the VU Amsterdam.

 Since december 2014 he now acts as chair of the Department of Biomechanics Engineering.

Most important research area is the relationship between structure and function of the human musculoskeletal system, with focus on the upper extremity.  Research topics are the relationship between wheelchair design and overuse injuries to the shoulder, or the effect of surgical interventions such as tendon transfers on muscle function and ADL. More recently, this has been extended with research topics in the field of sports, such as baseball pitching, skating technique and wheelchair basketball.
