David Lloyd is a Professor of Biomechanical Engineer in the School of Allied Health Sciences. He is Director of the Griffith Centre for Biomedical and Rehabilitation Engineering (GCORE) in the Menzies Health Institute Queensland, and co-founder and Professor in Advanced Design and Prototyping Technologies Institute (ADaPT).

David is a mechanical engineer who first worked in the aeronautical industry, but then completed a PhD and post-doctoral training in biomechanical engineering and neurophysiology. After a long career in biomechanical engineering he is now an elected Fellow of the International Society of Biomechanics. David and team have developed computer-simulation methods to study the causes, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions, with these methods now being adopted in the orthopaedics and neurorehabilitation industries. David and team are currently developing accurate personalised digital models of humans with real-time capabilities by combining data from laboratory-based instrumentation, multimodal medical imaging and wireless wearable devices. David and team work with hospitals and sporting organisations, and medical imaging, orthopaedic, and wearable device companies.

He has more than 230 refereed scientific articles and over 300 conference proceedings, which attracted over 13,000 citations and a H index of 59 (Google Scholar). David's and his colleagues's research has attracted over $AUD23Million in R&D funding from bodies that include ARC, NHMRC, MTPConnect and NIH, and has extensive active national and international collaborations with researchers at University of Western Australia, University of Melbourne, Sydney University, Monash University, Flinders University, Murdoch University, Federation University and Latrobe University in Australia, University of Florida, Stanford University, Mayo Clinic and University of Delaware in the USA, University of Auckland (NZ), University of Twente and TU Delft (The Netherlands) and University of Padua (Italy).
