Overview

Professor R. Setchi leads Mechanics, Materials and Advanced Manufacturing at the School of Engineering of Cardiff University. She also provides a dynamic research leadership to her High-Value Manufacturing (HVM) and Knowledge Engineering Systems (KES) research groups. She received her Double Honours degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (first class, Summa Cum Laude) from Moscow Technological University in Russia, and her PhD from Cardiff University, UK. Professor Setchi joined the School of Engineering as a Lecturer in 2000; she was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2007 and Chair in 2011.

Professor Setchi has a distinguished track record of research in a range of areas including manufacturing, AI, robotics, Cyber-Physical systems and Industry 4.0, and, in particular, has built an international reputation for excellence in knowledge-based and semantic engineering systems. Over a period of 20 years, Professor Setchi has been able to secure, with colleagues, external grant support totalling more than £14 million. She has collaborated with over 20 UK and 30 overseas universities, 15 research organisations and 30 industrial companies from more than 20 countries in Europe, Asia and Australia. She has provided research leadership on over 25 collaborative projects funded by UK and overseas funding bodies. She has completed research projects with many UK-based companies including Airbus, BAE Systems, Bosch UK, Brass Bullet, Costain, Ford, Iota Sigma, Highways England, Primasil Silicones, Panalpina and Renishaw as well as a number of companies from Europe including Schneider Electric, SAP, Siemens, neuroConn, and Meytec from Germany, Robotiker and Robotnik from Spain, Centro Ricerche Fiat, FIDIA S.p.A., Stile Bertone, and Hewlett Packard from Italy, Smart Brain from Norway, Pertimm from France and many more. Her FP7 project SRS has been reported in the annual UK Department of Health R&D report and included in a report by Kay Swinburne MEP as an example of a high-impact project (the only one from Wales). It has been presented at high-profile events in the House of Lords, Palace of Westminster and an EU-Japan Conference in Tokyo.

Professor Setchi is Chartered Engineer, Chartered IT Professional, and European Engineer. She is Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Fellow of the British Computer Society, and Senior Member of IEEE.
