James Gilbert

Professor of Engineering

Biography In 30 years of research, Professor Jim Gilbert has tackled a wide range of challenges with a common theme of measuring, modelling and controlling engineering systems.

These include robotics and manufacturing systems, medical rehabilitation and energy harvesting systems ranging from microwatts generated from human movement to megawatts from offshore wind turbines.

His current work is focused on speech restoration using articulator movement measurements for people who have had a laryngectomy.

Prof Gilbert is also working on the measurements of offshore wind turbine and wave energy system behaviour to support performance and reliability improvement, as part of wider research into offshore renewable energy systems.
