Research Interests

Dr Lara Harris is a Research Fellow in Digital Twin Measurement Systems at the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME), Coventry University. Her research interests are in the design of datasets and data acquisition systems to support development of digital twins, with a current focus on novel vehicle applications. Data management, verification and quality assessment are closely related topics in her work, especially in the context of measurement from heterogeneous sensor networks.

Lara is leading Coventry's measurement system strategy and implementation on the APC19 CLEAN project (Clean Logistics for Emerging African Nations).


Lara has a background in challenge-led research and was previously an Industry Collaboration Fellow in the UKAS-accredited Acoustics Laboratories at the University of Salford. Here she designed and conducted research for commercial clients, and played a leading role supporting the calibration team in their successful application to become the UK’s first designated measurement institute in a decade – the National Institute for Airborne Acoustic Metrology.

Before returning to academia, she worked as an engineer in the automotive and industrial safety sectors. Her roles spanned a wide range of responsibilities across commercial R&D and product delivery, contributing to products at every stage from conception through to production. She worked closely with suppliers and manufacturing teams, developing a particular interest in the quality impacts of process measurement and control.
