A curious mind; thinks himself as an inventor and improver of applied technology. A big admirer of Clarence Birdseye and August Krogh. Trained as an engineer (DTU) and Ph.d. (UCPH), currently working primarily at CAMES (Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation), where he is responsible for technical development at CAMES Rigshospitalet.
Scientific interest within biomechanics (how living things move) and physiology; ranging from gait in high heeled shoes to finding the fastest fish in the sea, to how physicians perform endoscopy. In respect to medical education, Morten has developed algorithms for assessing physician performance based on their motions (biomechanics). This kind of analysis is being used for Quality Assurance of procedures, but initially intended for tools for feedback when practicing in a simulation setting. It is the motion capture and analysis utilizing Natural User Interfaces that spiked his interest in the possibilities that Virtual Reality and the likes bring. It all sums up in ca. 40 scientific publications and two patents.
