Dr Lijuan Wang


Lijuan Wang received her BEng degree in Computer Science and Technology from Qiqihar University, Heilongjiang, China in 2010 and her PhD degree in Measurement and Automation from North China Electric Power University (NCEPU), Beijing, China in 2014. She subsequently obtained a second PhD degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK in 2017. After that she worked at the University of Teesside as a Lecturer in Instrumentation and Control Engineering. Since June 2018 she has been a Lecturer in Electronic Engineering at the University of Kent.
She was awarded the Best Student Poster in 2014 I2MTC (International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference), the Best Presentation Award in 2015 ISMTMF (International Symposium on Measurement Techniques for Multiphase Flows), the Prize for Excellent PhD Thesis by NCEPU, the 2015 IEEE Graduate Fellowship by the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society and the 2019 J. Barry Oakes Advancement Award in recognition of her contributions to the development of soft computing models for multiphase flow measurement.
Her main areas of expertise include multiphase flow measurement, condition monitoring of mechanical systems, computational modelling (FEM, CFD), electrostatic sensing, hyperspectral imaging and machine learning.
