Dr Zhi-Qiang Zhang


Since March 2016, I have been an academic staff at University of Leeds with a joint appointment 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. 

I have pioneered research into human motion and kinematics analysis using wearable inertial sensors and has established a proven track record in wearable sensing, deep learning, rehabilitation and musculoskeletal modelling.
