Personal Statement

Dr Yashar Javadi is a Strathclyde Chancellor’s Fellow (Lecturer as part of the 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 ‎‎>45 journal papers with >1300 citations in total, including two ‎papers with >100 ‎citations.
