Jianqiao Ye is a Professor and the Chair of Mechanical Engineering at Lancaster University and a member of the Lancaster Intelligent, Robotic and Autonomous Systems Centre (LIRA).

Jianqiao's research covers a broad range of both academic and industrial interests, including failure and damage of fibre reinforced composites, advanced steel-concrete composite structures, geopolymer, lighter and green cementitious materials, cement and concrete carbonation, offshore oil and gas structures and vibration energy harvesting. He has worked on testing, numerical modelling and optimization of a wide range of materials and structures, which has been extended to the applications of modern analytical instruments such as X-CT, SEM, XRD, EDS, and data-driven techniques, including metamodelling, machine learning and digital twins.

Jianqiao has collaborative research with a number of top research institutes around the world, including Australian National University, Nanyang Technological Univeristy, NPL, Stanford University, Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Wuhan University and Shenzhen University. His contributions to industrial applications of composite materials and structures are also internationally recognised. His research has been supported by many leading UK and international funding bodies, such as the European Commission, EPSRC, RS, RAE, and  industrial companies, including Airbus, BAE Systems, Dunlop, DSTL, Force Technology,  ITASCA and QinetiQ. 

Jianqiao has published three books and over 200 refereed papers in international journals and conferences proceedings. His papers have attracted over 6700 citations and an H-index of 45 (Google Scholar). He is amongst the world's top 2% most influential scientists in the Stanford University lists "Lifetime Scientific Influence Ranking" and the "2023 Global Scientists Influence Ranking",an achievement he has had for the fourth consecutive year( Elsevier).

Jianqiao has been a regular reviewer, an editorial board member/editor of many international conferences and a number of refereed journals. He is also a member of the ASCE Stability Committee and a Fellow of and  Industrial Advisor to the IMechE.

Engineering modules Jianqiao has taught at Lancaster University include Mechanics of Materials (ENGR111), Vibration Analysis and Applications (ENGR352), Fundamentals of Manufacturing (ENGR112) and Engineering Analysis (ENGR201). He is also an Engineering Program Consultant at Blackpool & Fylde College and the external examiner of the UG Mechanical/Sustainable Energy Engineering program at Queen Mary University of London.
