GEORGIOS GIARMATZISPostdoctoral Researcher


Georgios Giarmatzis is a physicist, graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2006. His interest in human motion and physiology led him to his second Bsc degree in Sport science and Physical education from Democritus University of Thrace, finished in 2012. The same year, he begun his doctoral studies at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, with primary research interest the biomechanical analysis of exercises in terms of peak mechanical loading at the hip and optimization of training programs to address osteoporosis. His main research interest is in the field of biomechanics, with key area of interest computational multi-scale modeling of human locomotion, to be used in areas of various musculoskeletal disorders and rehabilitation. Currently, he is working on a dedicated workflow to provide real-time feedback on gait strategies using multi-scale musculoskeletal modeling and on a virtual reality platform to facilitate in vitro surgery interventions at the knee.
