Dr Ziyun Ding is a research associate in the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injuries Studies at Imperial College London, under the supervision of Professor Anthony Bull. Currently, her research role is to develop an advanced musculoskeletal biomechanics model for British amputees after blast injuries. Information obtained from the computational models can be used to better assist the clinical intervention strategies, rehabilitations, and prosthesis design on amputations.

Ziyun joined in the Bioengineering department, Imperial College London as a Research Associate in 2014. Her research focused on simulation and analysis of tissues loading on articular joints during dynamic activities of daily living, based on subject-specific musculoskeletal biomechanics modelling techniques. She received her PhD degree in the University of Liverpool in 2013, focusing on digital human modelling and simulation in ergonomics analysis.
