Biography

Dr. James Griffin Experienced Senior Lecturer/Principal Engineer with over 20 years experience in designing, implementing and advancing automated control and monitoring of manufacturing systems. Posts ranging from Rolls Royce Research Fellowship to senior engineering within MBDA and QinetiQ affords James very well in advancing intelligent monitoring and control of manufacturing systems. James restarted his academic career with an international post at the University of Chile, mechanical engineering department. Here James made considerable impact where research calls now look into intelligent manufacture (He is now part of CORFO/Conicyt Reviewing Panel as well as Visiting Professor to several universities). James is a reviewer for 8 international journals and is an Airbus UK Studentship winner at an International conference in manufacturing (ICMR 2006). In James's short time publishing publically he has: 18 International Journal with 12 conference publications.

Vision Statement

I feel that during my time in industry there was a lack of progression in robust monitoring and automated control systems. During such times I was working on simulation and modelling of complex flying systems within the UK defence. Such technical challenges and experiences afforded me well when returning back to academic research now concentrated towards NDT methods applied to automated manufacture. I feel if we can prototype and test beyond reasonable doubt such methods will change the landscape of manufacturing where machines become more interactive, robust and progression will become more common place.
