Personal profile

Personal information

Dr. Raôul R.D. Oudejans is (Associate) Professor Learning and Performing in Sports, Department of Human Movement Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Faculty of Sports and Nutrition, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands. He has always been intrigued by the excellence with which humans can move around in their environments and the seemingly limitless possibilities to improve perceptual-motor skills and become ever better. He received his PhD in 1996 on his research into the optics and actions of catching fly balls in baseball. Ever since his main research and teaching areas are perceiving and moving in sports and other high-pressure contexts such as police work and performing arts with emphasis on the psychological factors involved in performing. The last fifteen years Raôul specialized in the visual control of the basketball shot as well as in training and performing under pressure. His research is part of the program Sports and Work of research institute Amsterdam Movement Sciences (AMS) and Institute for Brain and Behaviour Amsterdam (iBBA).
