Personal profile


Dr Jiabin Jia obtained his BEng (2002) in Electronics Engineering and MSc (2005) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Wuhan University, China. After worked one year in the Hardware R&D department of H3C Technology Co. Ltd, China, Dr Jia started his PhD study supported by the ORSAS scholarship from 2006 and achieved his PhD degree in 2010 at The University of Leeds, UK. Following three years working on an EPSRC project as a Research Fellow, he started to work at the School of Engineering, The University of Edinburgh from October 2013.

Dr Jia’s expertise is in the area of sensing physics, electronic instrumentation, process measurement and analysis. The research in Dr Jia’s laboratory takes an approach of synergistic integration of physics, modelling, optimization and design, to provide innovative sensing solutions for various challenging problems.

So far, he has been awarded research funding more than £500k as PI and £2M as Co-I. Dr Jia is maintaining close collaborations with industrial partners. A number of technological breakthroughs were developed, patented and licensed for commercialisation to the world-leading industrial company in process tomography, Industrial Tomography Systems plc (ITS). His work attracted interest from international company. After a worldwide technology tender, Fuji Electric Ltd invested £300K on commissioned research basis to develop a wet gas metering technology. In 2016 and 2018, Dr Jia undertook consultancy work for the National University of Ireland Galway and Pennsylvania State University to provide technical advice. So far, more than 40 peer-reviewed journal and two book chapters has been published. Two patents were granted. Three PhD students have successfully achieved degree under his supervision. At present, he is supervising five PhD students and two PDRAs.
