Dr. Henggui Zhang is Professor of Biological Physics. He received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Cardiology from the University of Leeds in 1994. Then he worked as postdoctoral research fellow at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (1994-1995) and the University of Leeds(1996-2000), and then senior research fellow at the University of Leeds(2000-2001). In October 2001, he moved to UMIST to take up a lectureship. From then, he worked as lecturer (2001-2004; UMIST), senior lecturer (2004-2006) and Reader (2006-2009) in the University of Manchester. He currently holds Chair of Biological Physics Group at School of Physics & Astronomy, The University of Manchester.
His research interests cover Computational Biology and Non-linear Dynamics. He has authorised over 180 papers and conference abstracts in his research field that including biophysical modelling of the electrical-mechanical activity of cardiac systems at cellular, tissue and organ levels, and quantification of chaotic time series and spatiotemporal complexity.
