Dr Hussam Muhamedsalih is a senior research fellow in the Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT) and EPSRC Future Metrology Hub at the University of Huddersfield.

Hussam initially joined the University of Huddersfield to study for MSc in Control Systems and Instrumentation, graduating in February 2008. Continuing his studies at Huddersfield, Hussam was awarded a PhD by the University of Huddersfield on 8th May 2013 for the project ‘Investigation of wavelength scanning interferometry (WSI) for embedded metrology’, supervised by Prof. Dame Xiangqian (Jane) Jiang. On the 9th May 2013, he was appointed as a full-time position as research fellow at the CPT.

Hussam published more than 30 papers in international conference proceedings and prestigious journals such as 'Applied Optics', 'Optics Letter' and 'Proceedings of SPIE'. He is also co-inventor of one international patent (WO/2010/082066: Surface Characteristic Determining Apparatus).

Hussam has been involved in two major projects: EU FP7 NanoMend and an ERC Proof of Concept projects. He successfully delivered a fully operational optical inspection system for the NanoMend. During the ERC project, Hussam worked on developing an advanced WSI and translating the research to business innovation in collaboration with IBS Precision Engineering in the Netherlands. Dr Muhamedsalih was recently awarded an Enterprise Fellowship by the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAeng) to develop and deliver a clear strategy from fundamental research through to business innovation. 

Dr. Muhamedsalih is also a module leader in Mathematics for 1st year undergraduate engineering students with a class capacity of 150 students. He currently co-supervises 2 PhD students and supervises 4 BSc students with research subjects all derived from his research activities. 

His research work and achievements have been widely recognised. In 2016, he received the highest Fellowship Award from London-based Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers (WCSIM). In 2014, the WSI system that developed by him was named as 2014 winner in the Manufacturing Technology category of the annual Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Innovation Awards, selected from over 400 entries from 22 countries. In 2013, he received Postgraduate Award from WCSIM, London. Hussam has given a public demonstration of his research at the Science Museum - London in October 2018.
