Dr Nadimul Faisal is currently a Reader in Mechanical Engineering (Micromechanics & Surface Engineering) at Robert Gordon University (RGU), Aberdeen, UK. Additionally, he is Research Degree Coordinator at the School of Engineering, Advanced Materials research group lead, and editor of School’s research newsletter.

Previously worked as Post-Doctoral Research Associate at Alfaisal University, Teaching Fellow at University of Strathclyde, Research Assistant at Heriot-Watt University. He has worked as Junior Research Fellow at Surface Engineering Division, International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), Hyderabad, India.

Experience includes leading & co-leading research funded by Scottish Funding Council (SFC), Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC), Centre of Excellence for Sensor and Imaging Systems (CENSIS), The Data Lab, The Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland, National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS), Innovate UK, Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL).

He has collaborated on number of commercial projects funded by small & large companies.

He is Member of IMechE and CEng, and IMMM. He is Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and Member of RSE’s Young Academy of Scotland (MYAS). He is EPSRC Full College member.

He is a founder of d.FL (a start-up technology company).

Activities
He is an experimental researcher and work in the field of mechanical & materials engineering, with focus on ‘Micromechanics & Surface Engineering‘. With the current academic roles and associated responsibilities, he is working independently and at the same time establishing collaborative research and teaching programmes. He teach various modules in BEng/MEng courses at various levels related to Mechanical and Offshore Engineering and supervises interdisciplinary graduate students (taught/research, e.g. MSc, MRes, PhD).
