Dr Wei Meng


Wei Meng received his Ph.D. degree in Engineering in 2016 jointly trained by the School of Information Engineering, Wuhan University of Technology (2012-2014), China and Department of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Auckland (2014-2016), New Zealand. He is currently a Research Fellow in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Leeds, UK. His research interests include robot-assisted rehabilitation, human-robot interaction, and learning control. He has directed 4 government-funded research projects and participated in 6 national-level projects in areas of rehabilitation robots, bio-signal processing, and interaction control. He has co-authored 3 books (published by Springer, IET, and Elsevier), published more than 40 refereed international Journal and conference papers, and hold 3 patents.

Dr. Meng is the corresponding reviewer of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Editor of journal Cogent Engineering. He served as a local organizing chair of the 2016 12th IEEE/ASME International Conference on Mechatronic and Embedded Systems and Applications (MESA), Auckland, New Zealand, and the 2018 IEEE/ASME International Conference on Advanced Intelligent Mechatronics (AIM), Auckland, New Zealand, and EPSRC Global Challenge Research Fund Rehabilitation Technology Workshops, Wuhan, China, 2018. He was a receipt of the Best Paper Award at the 2016 International Conference on Innovative Design and Manufacturing, and Best Paper Award at the 12th CAAI Conference on Intelligent Robotics, China, 2017.
