Dr Xianzhi Zhang

Senior Lecturer in Design and Manufacture, BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA, MIET

About

I am a Senior Lecturer in Engineering Design and Manufacture in the School of Engineering. In 2012, I obtained my PhD from University of Bath and was appointed as a postdoctoral researcher. Before I joined Kingston in 2015, I have been working on EU projects ‘Dematerialisation of machine tools' and STEPMAN. I specialise in manufacturing informatics and the integration between manufacturing systems. 

My research interests include manufacturing system integration, CAPP, knowledge management in manufacturing, intelligent manufacturing, cloud manufacturing, big data, STEP-NC etc. My research publications can be found:
