Senior Lecturer in Product Design


Mey joined Loughborough University in 2010. She has a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Malaysia and a PhD from University of Bristol, UK. Upon completion of her PhD in 2005, she worked on a multi-university Grand Challenge project on Knowledge and Information Management in Product-Service Systems (KIM) at University of Bath.

Key Awards:

  • Fellow of Higher Education Academy
  • Member of Design Society

Mey is currently a Senior Lecturer at Loughborough University and the lead academic for the Digital Automation Systems Design Laboratory within the Centre. Her research focus within the Centre is to support design of intelligent automation technologies using a system approach through understanding the human aspects including their knowledge, skills and emotions. More generally, her work addresses risk and uncertainty in the early design of complex, novel and through-life systems. She has also worked with the aerospace, defence, energy and automotive sectors.
