I am a motivated and experienced Chartered Engineer with extensive industrial and academic experience. I joined the Department of Engineering and Technology at University of Hertfordshire in 2021 and currently working as a Lecturer in Automotive Engineering (Design and Manufacture). My subject specialisms are Engineering Design & Analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE), Human Factors and Artificial Intelligence.
I hold a Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Birmingham. Prior to that, I studied Mechanical Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology. I am currently doing a PhD Research in "Developing Methods of Measuring and Parameterising Emotional and Physical States for use in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)" at Kingston University.
I have significant industrial experience of designing and development of award winning innovative seating systems for iconic car companies.
I'm a Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and have a passion for teaching and research. I have particular experience of teaching Automotive, Motorsport, Mechanical Engineering and Advanced Product Design Engineering & Manufacturing courses and supervised UG/PG research projects.
I am well connected in the broader engineering community and I am an active Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (MIMechE). I sit and hold leading positions on various Institution panels. I am a keen advocate of STEM and hold the Institution position of Council Member and Vice Chair of Greater London Region Committee.
My research area is Design Engineering and Analysis, Biomedical devices and implants, Ergonomics and Human Factors. My current research focuses on Signal Processing and Artificial Intelligence of Biomedical signals, facial features recognition, emotion identification and development of non-invasive Patient Monitoring Systems (PMS), Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) and Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
