Dr. Al-Lashi is a senior lecturer in the Embedded Systems and Electronic Engineering. Dr Al-Lashi's role is teaching and learning, tutorial guidance, research and other scholarly activities, curriculum and personal development.
Dr. Al-Lashi received his PhD degree in the electronic engineering from the University of Nottingham, UK in 2012. Then he worked as a research fellow at Electronic and Computer Science (ECS), University of Southampton from 2013 to 2015 and as a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Food Science and Nutrition at the University of Leeds for two years (2015-2017).
Also, Dr Al-Lashi worked as an assistant lecturer at the College of Engineering, University of Salahaddin, in Erbil, Iraq.
Dr. Al-Lash joined the Department of Engineering, Nottingham Trent university in 2017 to work as a lecturer / senior lecturer in the Embedded Systems and Electronic Engineering.
Whilst at the University of Southampton, Dr Al-Lashi was involved in the NERC project to develop autonomous optical instruments and image processing algorithms to image oceanic bubbles and whitecaps.
At the University of Leeds, he was involved in the EPSRC project to develop ultrasonic techniques to characterise complex materials and for quality assurance. Also he was involved in the Procter & Gamble Chariot project to develop ultrasonic techniques for powder characterisation.
Dr Al-Lashi research interest includes but not limited to autonomous systems, embedded systems, instrumentation and measurement, sensors, computer vision and image processing, electronic design, signal processing, imaging and optics, acoustics, ultrasound, non-destructive evaluations, oceanic engineering and materials characterization.
