Contacting me:

Dr. Zhong Fan joined Keele University as a Professor and Academic Director of SEND in Feb. 2017. Before that, he was Chief Research Fellow with Toshiba Research Europe, Bristol, U.K., leading research on IoT, smart grid, data analytics, and 5G communications. Earlier in his career, he was a Research Fellow with Cambridge University, a Lecturer with Birmingham University, and a Researcher with Marconi Laboratories, Cambridge. He also received a BT Short-Term Fellowship for his work at BT Laboratories. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Tsinghua University, China, and the Ph.D. degree from Durham University, U.K. His research interests are smart energy, fog networks, IoT, and machine learning applications.

For prospective students and visiting scholars:

I am always keen to recruit talented PhD and MSc students as well as host visiting scholars that work in related areas. I also welcome self-funded or government-funded (e.g., CSC) students. There are various funding opportunities for postdocs, e.g., EPSRC Fellowships, Newton International Fellowships, Newton Research Collaboration Programme, the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships, RAEng Research Fellowships, and Marie Curie Research Fellowships.

Keele University has been named as one of the most beautiful universities in the UK, with the largest collection of flowering cherry trees in the country.

My research interests are IoT, smart energy, smart city, wireless networks, and data analytics. I am currently leading the SEND (Smart Energy Network Demonstrator) Project at Keele which aims to create Europe’s first ‘at scale’ Smart Energy Network Demonstrator on Keele campus – a living laboratory where new energy-efficient smart technologies can be researched, developed and tested in a real world environment. For this project we have secured 15M GBP funding from ERDF and UK government. We are currently working with Siemens to build the infrastructure as well as setting up 26 research projects with local SMEs. 
 
We are currently recruiting a number of PhD researchers on IoT, data analytics and smart energy with very generous salary!
