Profile

Biography

Nakash Nazeer received his B.E. in Aeronautical Engineering in 2013 from Hindustan University, Chennai, India. His interest and passion for aerospace led him to Singapore where he received his MSc. in Aerospace Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The MSc. degree was a joint programme with The Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. During his masters he joined the Ultrasonic and NDE group led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. David Fan as a graduate student researcher. His research was on ultrasonic guided wave inspection for aircraft wing spar structures. He investigated the interaction of the shear horizontal guided wave mode with defects present in the bend region and studied the importance of the curvature effect on the different sensitivity to inner and outer bend defects.

In 2017 he moved to The Netherlands to purse his PhD in Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology at the department of Aerospace Structures and Materials. Within the department he was part of the Aerospace NDT group led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Roger Groves who was his PhD supervisor and also his promotor. The research in his study was part of the larger SmartX project involved in the design and development of an autonomous smart wing. He was responsible for the smart sensing of the SmartX wing which included shape sensing and load monitoring. He proposed, developed and demonstrated a novel fibre optic sensing method that was reliable, robust and cost effective for monitoring of morphing structures.
