Dr Pingfei Jiang


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.
