Short biography

Marie-Christine Fluet was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. She studied electrical engineering at the Polytechnical School of Montreal, Canada. She completed her PhD in Neuroscience at the Institute of Neuroinformatics, University of Zurich, Switzerland in 2009.

During her PhD, she studied the representation of hand movements in the ventral premotor cortex and investigated the possibility to decode grasping plans for the control of a prosthetic hand for paralyzed patients.

In February 2010, she joined the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab at the ETH of Zurich, Switzerland.
