Dr Zhenglin Liang

Research Associate

 Zhenglin joined DIAL in 2011 as a doctoral student. Since February 2016 he has been working as a research associate.

Zhenglin completed a BEng degree with 1st class honors in electrical and electronic engineering at the Manchester University and a MEng degree in communication and signal processing at the Bristol University. After completing his PhD in January 2016, Zhenglin has been working as a research associate. Part of his research is to help companies, such as Hitachi, to improve performance of their predictive maintenance of their asset management systems. 

Currently, he is working on both Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) project and Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) Project

Research interests:

  • Condition based maintenance and predictive maintenance
  • Stochastic process
  • Maintenance optimisation
  • Operation management
  • Risk analysis
  • Machine learning
  • System engineering
  • Smart system
  • Smart grid
