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 the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering (EEE) and the Department of Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management (DMEM). In a career spanning over 15 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 62 refereed technical articles (including 35 journal papers), first author on 43 papers, with h-index of 16 and 834 citations in total, including two papers with >100 citations. His international reputation in Welding/NDT has been also reflected in 133 manuscripts he has reviewed for many engineering journals (e.g., NDT&E, Ultrasonics, Materials & Design, etc.). Based on the Network map section of Pure at the University of Strathclyde (UoS), his co-authors have been spread all over the world from India to the Middle East, Europe and North America. 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 inspection) and Journal of Manufacturing Processes (residual stress).
