Biography

Prior to joining Solent University as a lecturer in engineering, Jilin held several research positions at Teesside University, Loughborough University and the University of Warwick.

He was involved in several successful research funding applications from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the European Union’s 6th and 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (EU-FP6/FP7).

He obtained a PhD in computer aided product design from Loughborough University and a BEng degree in engineering design and manufacturing from Tsinghua University in China. After completing his first degree, he spent several years in industry focusing on rapid prototyping and manufacturing (RP&M) technologies, computer integrated manufacturing (CIM), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and computer numerical control (CNC) applications/systems.
