Biography

Anmin Liu joined the University of Salford in January 2003 as biomechanics research fellow.

His research interests are in the areas of walking robotics, human biomechanics, particularly the foot and ankle biomechanics, gait analysis and dynamic simulation based on 3D motion capture and analysis. As the main researcher he joined a series research projects collaborated with Iowa State University of USA, the Kalolinska university hospital of Sweden, ETH in Switzerland and Shanghai Jiaotong University in China.
