Professor Liudi Jiang is Professor of Materials and Electromechanical Systems within Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton.
Liudi Jiang obtained BEng in Microelectronics, MSc in Physics. She received her Ph.D. in advanced materials from the University of Dundee in 2002. This was followed by her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Edinburgh on multidisciplinary research in developing novel materials, processes and electromechanical sensors for a range of applications etc. She was appointed a RCUK Academic Fellow (Roberts Fellow) in 2006 at the University of Southampton, Lecturer in 2008, Associate Professor in 2013 and then Professor in 2015. She is a Chartered Physicist.
Liudi currently leads a research group of 7 PhD students and 3 postdoctoral fellows with research projects spanning multidisciplinary areas of electromechanical sensors/actuators, functional materials and intelligent systems for many applications including e.g. biomedical, smart body interface, intelligent sensor/actuator systems, gait biomechanics, micro/nanoelectromechanical systems, and energy harvesting. She is currently the Director of Research for the Engineering Sciences Academic Unit.
