David G. Lloyd

David G. Lloyd received the B.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, N.S.W., Australia, in 1984, where after working in the aeronautical industry for several years, he received the Ph.D. degree in biomechanical engineering in 1994. He then undertook a postdoctoral training in neurophysiology and computational biomechanics in the Sensory Motor Performance Program, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL, USA. He is currently a Professor of musculoskeletal research, at the Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University, Brisbane, Qld., Australia, with adjunct Professorial appointments at the University of Western Australia, Crawley, W.A., Australia, and the University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA. He is an International Leader in EMG-informed neuromusculoskeletal modeling and using this to understand causes and treatments for musculoskeletal disease and injury. He has more than 160 journal papers and more than 220 refereed conference abstracts and papers. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Biomechanics, the Journal of Applied Biomechanics, and the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport, and was three times elected for a full 6 year term on the executive council of the International Society of Biomechanics.
