Prof. Shane Xie, University of Leeds, UK

Fellow of Engineering New Zealand, Fellow of IEEE & ASME

Professor Shane Xie joined the University of Leeds as Chair in Robotics and Autonomous Systems. Prof Xie has >28 years of research experience in rehabilitation robotics and exoskeletons. He is Director of the Mechatronics and Robotics programme and Director of the Rehabilitation Robotics Lab at the University of Leeds, and was previously the Director of the Rehabilitation Robotics Centre at the University of Auckland (2002-2016). Prof Xie is an elected Fellow of Engineering New Zealand, a Strategic Scientist of Wuhan University of Technology and a Distinguished Visiting Professor of the University of Macau, China. He was the David Bensted Fellow, Simon Fraser University, Canada. He played a leadership role in the establishment of the Mechatronics Engineering programme and was the Director of a world-first Master of Engineering Programme on Medical devices and Technologies  (2010-2017) at the University of Auckland. This programme was funded by TEC ($1.8M) to support innovation in medical technology, and was collaborated between the Faculties of Engineering and Medical and Health Sciences, as well as the Medical Technology Association of New Zealand. The programme provided 15~30 Masters each year with multidisciplinary knowledge and skills required to underpin successful innovation in the medical devices industry, filling the large demand for these skills in medical device industry.  Prof Xie has published > 480 refereed papers and 8 books in areas largely related to advanced robotics and mechatronics technologies for medical and rehabilitation. He was invited to be the Editor or Technical Editor of five reputable international journals. He was the Technical Editor of IEEE/ASME Transaction on Mechatronics (2013-2017), the Editor-in-Chief for the International Journal of Biomechatronics and Biomedical Robotics; the Associate Editor of International Journal of Mechatronics and Manufacturing Systems, International Journal of Advanced Mechatronic Systems, and International Journal of Mechatronics and Intelligent Manufacturing. He was invited to be a national or international panel member by funding organisations from the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology of NZ, the NSERC Discovery grant/Partnership grant of Canada, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and the National Science Foundation of Korea. He is the fellow of IEEE & ASME.
