Robert Rein:

Research assistant with the German Sport University Cologne.
Since October 2009 post-doc with the Volkswagen-project “Towards a Grammar of Gestures: Evolution, Brain, and Linguistic Structures”.
In 2009, post-doc with the Fyssen Foundation (Paris) based at the EHESS (Paris), project-title: “Modeling of stone-knapping movements in early hominids”.
In 2008, post-doc with the EU project “Hand to Mouth: a framework for understanding the archaeological and fossil records of human cognitive evolution” at the EHESS, Paris.
2003 - 2007, PhD dissertation “Coordination of a discrete multi-articular action from a dynamical systems perspective” at the School of Physical Education, University of Otago (New Zealand).
In 2003, Magister Artium in Sports Sciences, Sports medicine, and Physics at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University in Frankfurt/Main (Germany).
