Dr Feiyang He is a researcher with extensive academic training and research experience. He completed his PhD in 2022 at Cranfield University, where he conducted research on the dynamic response of damaged structures under thermal field conditions. Dr. He also holds a Master of Science degree in Automotive Mechatronics from Cranfield University, and a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Automotive Engineering from Coventry University, where he graduated with First Class Honors in 2017.
Dr He is the Research Fellow in Autonomous Rail Ultrasonic Inspections in Centre for Life-cycle Engineering and Management. He is working on the IN2TRACK3 project, a collaborative effort between Cranfield University, Network Rail and Sperry Rail Service. The project aims to develop an autonomous rail inspection system based on ultrasonic testing (UT) and demonstrate its feasibility at the technology readiness level (TRL) 6.
Dr He's expertise covers structural dynamics, fracture mechanics, additive manufacturing and non-destructive testing. Currently, He is actively involved in teaching and supervising MSc and PhD students in related fields.
