Prof Xiangqian Jane Jiang FREng
Professor Jane Jiang holds a UK Royal Academy of Engineering/Renishaw Chair in Precision Metrology and is the Director of the EPSRC National Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology. She obtained her PhD in measurement science in 1995, a Professorial Chair in 2003, a DSc for precision engineering in 2007.
Jane’s research covers the fundamental mathematical models and algorithms for geometrical products specification and metrology, including geometric shape, surface texture analysis, filtration and parametric characterization. She has developed new optical interferometry techniques for embedded sensors and instrumentation. Jane is a principle member of ISO TC/213 committee “Dimensional Geometrical Produces Specification and Verification” and the BSI TW/4 committee “Engineering drawing, metrology, and precision measurement”.
Jane is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng), a Fellow of the International Academy of Production Research / Collège International pour la Recherche en Productique (FCIRP) and the Institute of Engineering Technology (FIET). She is the current Chair of CIRP UK. She has published more than 340 papers. She was awarded a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award in 2006 and the Sir Harold Hartley Medal in 2014.
