Professor Jennings is responsible for promoting, supporting and facilitating Imperial College London's research performance and for leading on the delivery of the Research and Enterprise Strategy.
Dr Jun Jiang is a Lecturer in Mech. Eng. Dept. at Imperial College London, researching and developing future intelligent metal manufacturing techniques. In the past 5 years, Jun published ~50 top journal papers with >1000 citations (h-index 22). Jun obtained his DPhil from the Materials Dept. at Oxford University in 2013, developing micromechanical characterization technique for studying the plasticity in metals. He then moved to Imperial, Materials Dept. as a post-doc to study the fatigue problem in the aero engine components. In 2016, he started a new journey in the Mech. Eng. Dept. as a Research Fellow to research metal manufacturing process. In 2017, he was appointed as a Lecturer and established his Intelligent metal forming group. In 2018, Jun won the Imperial President’s Award for Excellence in Research. He is working on a range of metal manufacturing techniques such as hybrid additive manufacturing, solid-state additive manufacturing, intelligent rolling, robotic blacksmith.
