Personal profile

Biography

In August 2016 Radu took the role of Senior Lecturer in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering within the School of Computing and Engineering and is Course leader for the Engineering Foundation Year and Year 2 tutor for BEng/MEng Mechanical Engineering, BEng/MEng Energy Engineering and BEng/MEng Automotive Engineering. His academic duties include teaching both at undergraduate and postgraduate level a number of different subject such as Applied Computer Aided Design, Mechanical Design, New Product Development and Engineering Investigative Studies. 

Radu studied for a BEng in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Robots at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, graduating in 2008. He then moved on to complete Postgraduate studies in Computer aided design and flexible manufacturing systems at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, graduating in 2009.

He continued his studies completing a PhD in “Contributions regarding the use of modern techniques for measuring and modelling complex surfaces in the wear evaluation of total hip replacements”. Part of the work was done at the Centre for Precision Technologies at University of Huddersfield leading to graduation in 2011. Radu’s PhD work involved the development of methods for measuring and analysing material loss in orthopaedic hip replacement devices. 

As a direct result of his PhD in Radu was taken on in 2014 as a Research Fellow and then a Lecturer at the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology.
