Dr Zhiqiang Zhang


Since March 2016, I have been an academic staff at University of Leeds, where I hold a joint position in Body Sensor Network for Healthcare and Robot between School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and School of Mechanical Engineering. I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2010. Upon completion of my Ph.D. degree, I then moved to Imperial College London working as a research associate for five and half years. 

My primary research interests are applying wearable/pervasive sensing technologies into healthcare and wellbeing research, with emphasis on wearable human motion analysis for different patients groups. Meanwhile, I am also interested in exoskeleton rehab robots and prosthetics control using wearable sensors.
