Dr. Matija Milosevic
Dr. Milosevic is currently an Assistant Professor in Osaka University (Japan). His career with FES begun in Toronto (Canada), where he completed his graduate studies in rehabilitation engineering under the supervision of Dr. Milos R. Popovic. He received a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Toronto in 2015. After that, he moved to Japan, where he spent several years examining neurophysiology of FES with Dr. Kimitaka Nakazawa at the University of Tokyo. Dr. Milosevic stayed in Japan and began his academic career in Osaka. Specifically, his research spans applications of engineering principles in neurophysiology and neuroscience. His work aims to develop FES technologies and examine short- and long-term reorganization in the central nervous system after use of closed-loop FES technologies and how FES can influence neuroplasticity to improve motor function in individuals with neurological impairments. He has been a member of the IFESS community since 2012.
