Dr Georges Limbert is Associate Professor within Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.
Dr Georges Limbert (GL) is an Associate Professor in Mathematical Modelling in Biotribology within the national Centre for Advanced Tribology (nCATS) and Bioengineering Sciences Research Group (BSRG) at the University of Southampton.
His current research focus is on the biophysical modelling of biological soft tissues and the physics-based modelling of wear of polymers for orthopaedic and tissue engineering applications. GL has expertise in continuum/computational mechanics and the development of constitutive models for biomaterials, biological tissues and structures.
Before taking on his lectureship GL was a Senior Researcher at the Wales College of Medicine at Cardiff University (2001-2007) and, more recently, a Senior Consulting Engineer (Computational Biomechanics) at the Research Institute for Industry within the School of Engineering Sciences (SES) in Southampton (2007-2009) where he assisted orthopaedic implant companies in the design and CE marking of their products using computational modelling techniques.
GL holds a Master in Engineering Mechanics (Toulouse, France) and a Research Master in Theoretical Mechanics (Bordeaux, France). He obtained a PhD in Computational Biomechanics from the University of Southampton in 2002 and is a Chartered Engineer and Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) since 2005. GL also sits on the board of the Engineering in Medicine and Health Division of the IMechE since 2004.
