Personal profile

Research Focus

I am exploring new approaches to revolutionising manufacturing automation systems’ design, reconfiguration, integration, production, and final product servicing through digital manufacturing cooperation. The ongoing research focuses on effectively using new technologies in manufacturing, such as the internet of things (IoT), 3D scanning, virtual and augmented manufacturing and digital twinning. These methods are vital attributes of an entirely digitised manufacturing environment and how manufacturers can win the global race for acquiring new customers and engaging existing ones.
