Personal profile

Biography

After taking an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, James Shippen was employed in the defence industry performing stress and performance calculations on torpedos.

He then moved to work in the Design Analysis department for Rover Cars where he undertook dynamic analysis and mathematical simulation of passenger vehicles primarily using finite element methods. There arose a requirement for acoustic modelling which River didn’t have and so he wrote an acoustic capability into a commercially available finite element package for which he was awarded a PhD by the University of Birmingham and was offered a lectureship in Mechanical Engineering.

At the University of Birmingham Dr Shippen specialised in applying engineering theory to biological system where he was promoted to Director of Bioengineering and worked with many hospitals in the US and UK.

Research Interests

The development and validation of biomechanical analysis and the introduction of neural control into the musculoskeletal model

Vision Statement

My vision is simply to further biomechanical research.
