Personal profile

Overview

Teaching and research experience in inter/multi-disciplinary product and process development. Industrial work experience in automotive, plastic product design, mould design and manufacturing. Programme Leadership for BSc Computer aided Design programme at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS). 

Area of academic expertise - outline

Though my past work experience, I have worked with various commercial PDM/PLM systems for product design and development. Thus, I recognise various bottlenecks while working on multi-CAD/PDM/PLM environment in the supply chain. Summarising on my experience and current research portfolio, my areas of expertise are:

  • Product data/Information management in Multi-CAD/PDM environments for developing multidisciplinary products (Plastic products, Medical devices, Optical sensors, Coating systems, large structural components)
  • Product design, design optimisation and testing of above products
  • Agile product revision and legacy product data management.
  • 3-5 axis CNC machining, CAM process planning, Process simulation and verification, CNC post-processor development
  • Plastic injection mould design and mould flow simulation/analysis
  • Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T), Dimensional management
  • Data modelling using EXPRESS, STEP (ISO10303), STEP-NC (ISO 14649)
  • Remanufacturing strategies/processes for circular economy

Current teaching activities and interests

Programme Leader for BSc Computer Aided Design Programme and Lecturer in Manufacturing and Computer Aided Engineering

My teaching and research interest lies in the area of collaborative Product data / Information management in Multi-CAD environments, Product design and manufacturing processes, 3-5 axis CNC machining, CAM process planning, Digital twin, Manufacturing Process simulation and verification, CNC post-processor development, Plastic mould design and mould flow simulation, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T), Dimensional management, Styling and surfacing.

Visiting Lecturer at Changchun institute of Technology, China (June – July 2013, Dec 2016, Dec 2017, Dec 2018, May 2019, Online delivery 2020-2021). Module: CNC Machining (32Hrs-2 Weeks)

Co-PI for Erasmus+ funded “EU-Asia Collaboration for aCcessible Education in Smart Power Systems (eAccess)” Project. eAccess project aspires to help Asian partner universities to fill knowledge and skill deficit in the area of modern power system through knowledge dissemination, skill development and capacity building. My focus and interest in this project is to disseminate video-assisted pedagogical approaches for delivering/teaching Engineering modules.   

At UWS, I have been teaching following modules for UG and PG programmes. This teaching has been closely linked with my research portfolio. I have been responsible for teaching and coordinating following modules at UWS: *Represents Module Coordinator
