Dr Qunfen Qi is a research fellow in the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology (CIMAM) at the University of Huddersfield. Qunfen has a BEng degree in Mechanical Engineering and an MSc in Measurement Technology. She was awarded a PhD by the University of Huddersfield on 2013 with a thesis entitled “Bridging the knowledge gap between design, manufacture and measurement in the field of surface texture” under the supervision of Professors Xiangqian Jane Jiang and Paul J Scott at the Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT), University of Huddersfield.
During her PhD project Qunfen designed and developed an infrastructure that integrating with Computer-Aided systems to facilitate designers, engineers and metrologists by a multi-tasks platform for surface texture design, manufacture and measurement. It also involves the development of novel knowledge model based on category theory to structure the complicated surface texture knowledge in GPS. The project outputs resulted in a prototype system which is recognised by Rolls Royce Manufacture Group and numerous colleagues. She has been granted the annual award of Huddersfield Association Women Graduate in 2012. On the 1st Jan 2014, she was appointed a full-time position as research fellow at the CIMAM. Currently, Qunfen is working under the EPSRC Fellowship in Manufacturing project “Controlling Geometrical Variability of Products for Manufacturing”, to investigate the fundamental structure of Geometrical Products Specifications and Verification (GPS) to prove consistency, completeness, and robustness of GPS.
