Dr Liang previously received his BEng and MPhil degrees in 1982 and 1985 in China. From 1985 to 1995, he became a lecturer, a senior lecturer and an associate professor at one of prestigious universities in China. In 1996 he was award Sino-British Friendship Scholarship to do his PhD studying at the University of Manchester and granted a PhD degree in 2000. Before joining in Huddersfield University in 2012, Dr Bo Liang used to be a research fellow at Cranfield Univeristy and a senior research fellow at Manchester Metropolitan University from 2001 to 2012.
Dr Liang has spent more than twenty years working on the areas of optimization control, mechatronic systems design and simulation, advanced signal processing and control engineering technology. He has been involved in many research projects in which he either held complete responsibility or was the primary researcher. He has extensive experience in the development of intelligent control systems technology with the integration of smart sensors, data acquisition and signal analysis and motor controls. He also has expertise in mathematical modelling and simulation, prototype system design and implementation using Matlab, C++ language programming.
