* Update (January 2021): Accepting PhD students.
Dr Yashar Javadi is a Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow (Lecturer as part of Strathclyde Global Talent Programme) at the University of Strathclyde. His multidisciplinary works have been reflected in his appointment which is a joint appointment between two departments (EEE and DMEM). He is currently Guest Editor of "Welding and Additive Manufacturing for Industry 4.0", a special issue of "Journal of Manufacturing and Material Processing", and also in the Topic Board of that journal. He is also editor of Special Issue "Robotic Non-Destructive Testing" in Sensors.
In a career spanning over 16 years in the field of engineering (particular focus on welding, non-destructive evaluation, additive manufacturing and robotics), he has worked as a lecturer and postdoctoral research associate (at The University of Manchester and the University of Strathclyde) in the academia and also a manager of the welding/NDT department and welding engineer in the industry. He has published >40 journal papers with >1000 citations in total, including two papers with >100 citations.
Currently, he is a member of Centre for Ultrasonic Engineering (CUE) where his research focus is on the in-process inspection and residual stress measurement (non-destructive methods) in the welding and Wire + Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM). Some part of his current research outputs is reflected in two WAAM/NDT papers published in Insight (2018) and Additive Manufacturing (2019) journals plus two Welding/NDT papers recently published (2020) in Materials & Design (in-process calibration) and Journal of Manufacturing Processes (residual stress).
