Well that pretty easy. In the code for checking the users login you can simply use a redirect header.
After the login has been verified you can grab the username either from the form they submitted or from the query you did to validate the login.
$username = $_POST['username'];
$username = $row['username'];
Obviously the exact coding will depend on what your coding is.
And then all you need is to redirect them with a redirect header like so.
header("Location: /members/" . $username);
you can use either a relative path something like above or use the full URL.
header("Location: http://www.mysite.com/members/" . $username);

Create a session on the login page called username that matches the username field in your form. Put something like this on the logged in correctly page...
$user = $_SESSION['username'];
