Wang Jian, PhD, BEng, Associate Researcher in the HUST, was born in Huangshan, China, 1986. He obtained his BEng degree in the University of Science and Technology of China, in 2008, and PhD degree in the University of Huddersfield (UK), in 2013. Then he work successively in the National Physical Laboratory as a visiting scholar and the University of Huddersfield as a research fellow. He focuses on the research of metrology of engineering surface products, including sampling optimisation, multi-sensor measurement. Member of the IET.
