I am a Lecturer in Engineering Design and Manufacture at Kingston University London. Before I join Kingston I was working at Brunel University London. I have a PhD in Design Engineering, MSc in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London, and BEng in Mechanical Engineering from University of Sheffield.
Currently accepting self-funded PhD applications. Students with China Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarships are also welcome.
Lecturer in Engineering Design and Manufacture
My teaching expertise are within Engineering Design, Design Metholody and Design Innovation.
My research interests include design innovation, data-driven design, robust engineering design and IP.
