Senior Lecturer in Product Design


Mey has a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Malaysia and a PhD from University of Bristol, UK. Her research experience is inter-disciplinary, focussing on development of data and knowledge-driven models and methods to support through-life engineering of Product-Service Systems and advanced manufacturing, in collaboration with the aerospace, defence, energy and automotive sectors. Her broad interests are applicable to engineering design, energy systems and manufacturing operations, where enhanced decision making under uncertainty is critical to the success of the whole systems. Her research has been conducted in collaboration with researchers from Management, Human Factors and Computer Science. Her postdoctoral research was a multi-university Grand Challenge project on Knowledge and Information Management in Product-Service Systems (KIM), focusing on information capture and feedback of service experience to correct and update design knowledge for long life products and systems. She has used data mining and faceted classification techniques.

She is currently an investigator in the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Intelligent Automation. Her focus within the Centre is on the understanding of process variability, human skills through instrumentation, Virtual Reality and machine learning in complex manufacturing processes and how this understanding can be used to inform the design and business case of automation. As part of the Centre activities, she also engages with the SMEs and Outreach initiatives. Her research income of over £7M is from the Innovative Electronics Manufacturing Research Centre (IeMRC), EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Intelligent Automation, Impact Acceleration Account, and the industry.

She has been an investigator on Costing for Avionics Through-Life Availability and Competitive Contract Bidding for Complex Services research projects funded by the IeMRC. In the context of changing business models into providing end results e.g. Product-Service Systems, her research focusses on uncertainty analysis and modelling for supporting contract bidding and through-life decision making. Her research has received further funding for International Collaboration with Georgia Tech and Impact Acceleration Account.

Her current projects include costing methodology for novel nuclear energy generation and resource position in conflict situations.
