Personal profile


Having an Electronics Engineering background (BS Electronics), Naeem completed his MSc in Engineering Control Systems and Instrumentation from the University of Huddersfield. Naeem’s final year project was to design a cost effective machine tool axis straightness measurement system which may replace expensive laser systems commercially used. During the project Naeem experienced severe non-linearity in the data obtained from the designed sensor system which was later researched and found to be the cause of temperature fluctuations which effectively expanded not only the machine but also the sensor system. This become the starting point for Naeem’s PhD. Naeem continued to research into the causes of machine tool thermal instabilities. However thermal tests were found to be very time consuming and is what industries don’t want. Naeem successfully devised a method where thermal testing times on machine tools can be reduced from fort-night to hours. After completing the PhD, Naeem joined the Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT) within the Engineering Control and Machine Performance Group (ECMPG) at the University of Huddersfield as Research Assistant.
