Dr Dominic Orth

Lecturer Motor Learning and Control


I received my Master’s of Applied Research (Human Movement Science) at the Queensland University of Technology with Prof. Davids and Dr. Renshaw where I examined the role of interpersonal constraints on the regulation of gait during soccer kicking. I then carried out my PhD research in a joint tutelage programme between the University of Rouen (France) with Prof. Seifert and the Queensland University of Technology with Prof. Kerr (Australia). This research examined the role of variation in constraints on learning and transfer in rock climbing. Following this, I undertook a research fellowship at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam with Dr. Van der Kamp and Prof. Savelsbergh. Here I initiated and lead a range of research projects examining creativity from a movement science perspective. During my time at the VU I also won three Dutch National grants for developing new technologies to support performance monitoring in combat sports and climbing. I now continue these collaborations from Swinburne in my position as Lecturer in Motor Learning and Control.
