The University of Auckland
Dr James Lim has been a full-time academic since 2007, having previously worked at University of Strathclyde and Queen's University, Belfast, before joining University of Auckland in 2014. Prior to this, I worked at the Steel Construction Institute (SCI), the UK equivalent of HERA. His research interests lie in the field of steel-framed structures, including cold-formed steel, portal frames and composite construction. His research is dominated in trying to understand fundamental structural behaviour, for which he employ a combination of numerical modelling and full-scale testing. More recently, his research includes structural engineering applications to Building Information Modelling (BIM).
