I joined the University of Huddersfield in September 2012 as a Research fellow. My main work focus is to employ computational tools to optimise the design of mechanical joints (e.g. V-band coupling joints) which are used in a wide range of applications, e.g. turbochargers.
I was awarded my PhD by Loughborough University in 2008, for which I have developed a computational tool to optimise the design of aeronautical filters. This involved studying CFD, structural analysis and Solid-fluid interaction within aeronautical filters.
Following my PhD, I have worked as a member of computational biology group at University of Sheffield (Aug 2008-Aug2012). I was involved in the following two projects to develop a Multi-scale computational framework to study behaviour of Tendon and epithelium tissues:
Prior to joining academia, I was working for COMSOL Ltd as an application engineer. My main tasks were to deal with customer technical requests and also training. Also, I was involved in preparing proof of concept for customers such as AIRBUS and Smith detections.
In addition to the above, I have 4 years experience of Rapid Prototyping and tooling in Automotive industry.
My current research area is on structural analysis of systems using Finite element analysis with specific focus on structural integrity alaysis of Joints and connections. Due to my research background I am intrested in the following areas as well:
