Dr. Hongwei Wang is a Tenured Associate Professor and PhD Advisor at ZJUI with the honor of specially-invited expert by Zhejiang Province. Prior to joining ZJUI, Dr. Wang had been working at the University of Portsmouth for nearly 8 years, first as a Lecturer and from January 2014 as a Senior Lecturer. Dr. Wang conducted his PhD research at the Engineering Design Center of Cambridge University between 2007 and 2010 and prior to this he obtained his Bachelor’s degree and MSc degree from Zhejiang University (College of Biomedical Engineering and Instrumentation Science and Chukezhen Honors College) and Tsinghua University (National CIMS Engineering Research Center), respectively. His main research interests are in the application of information and computing technologies to the design, analysis, manufacture and maintenance of complex engineering systems. Specifically, he has worked on complex system design, knowledge engineering, collaborative modeling and simulation, and the condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of power systems. He has worked as PIs for over 10 projects funded by research councils, leading to the publication of one monograph and over 80 papers in SCI/EI indexed journals and conference proceedings as well as the filing of 8 patents.  Dr. Wang is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and serves as a committee member of a number of key IEEE technical committees. Dr. Wang has supervised over 30 MSc/PhD students to successful completion (one of them was awardee of the highest honor for self-funded students studying abroad by the China Scholarship Council). He gave two keynote speeches, and was awarded two “best paper awards”, in international conferences during the past few years.
