Personal profile


Ming-Wei Chang (BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA, FIMMM)

Dr. Ming-Wei Chang joined the School of Engineering at the University of Ulster in 2019. Prior to this, he was an Associate Professor at Zhejiang University, where he served as a member of the academic committee and as a member of the Overseas High-level Talents of Zhejiang Province, China. He earned his PhD from University College London and furthered his research as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford. From 2003 to 2008, he worked as an R&D manager and principal investigator at the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Taiwan.

Thus far, he has supervised numerous PhD students (both national and international), as well as undergraduates, MSc students, and postdoctoral researchers. He has published over 100 scientific articles and has been granted 35 international patents for his work in the development of sensors, natural products, and healthcare devices. Currently, he is focusing on developing novel manufacturing processes for engineering micro/nanostructures for use in biomedical applications and healthcare technologies. He has conducted peer reviews for major academic publishers, including RSC, ACS, Elsevier, and Wiley.

He currently serves on the editorial board of Bioengineering and Materials Science in Additive Manufacturing, and he is also an Associate Editor for Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology, Materials Highlights, and Biofunctional Materials. Furthermore, he serves as a guest editor for special issues in other journals
