Areas of Expertise: Mechanical Engineering
Javaid is an additive manufacturing specialist with expertise in interdisciplinary studies associated with mechatronics and robotics.
Javaid is an active researcher in the field of additive manufacturing and has a wealth of experience in characterising and analysing varied materials for product development. He has designed and developed several processes capable of manufacturing polymers, metals and composites (metal/metal and plastic/metal) based on the techniques of additive manufacturing. Javaid’s current research focuses on interlacing existing manufacturing practices (subtractive, additive and hybrid) with advanced robotics for engineering applications.
Javaid was awarded a fully funded studentship for PhD studies from the Department of Engineering & Built Environment at Anglia Ruskin University. He designed a new additive manufacturing process to produce metal/composite parts and was awarded his doctorate degree in 2016. Javaid was also awarded merit scholarship during his MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering Science/Mechatronics at the University of Southampton. For his MSc project, he designed a novel mechanism to produce multiple material parts using a desktop-based 3D printer. Javaid was the recipient of Pakistan Government’s merit scholarship during his undergraduate studies in Mechatronics & Control Engineering at University of Engineering & Technology. His final year project was based on the design of a master-slave dexterous robotic hand.
