Dr Sadik Omairey
Research Fellow II
Sadik is a Research Fellow at Brunel Composites Centre (BCC), a joint venture between Brunel University London and The Welding Institution (TWI) since June 2019. He is currently the technical lead and support for three collaborative projects that involve industrial and academic partners in automotive crash structures design, assembly of an all-composites aircraft fuselage, and thermoplastic additive manufacturing. Besides, Sadik often represents BCC at academic and non-academic conferences and meetings, proposals writings, dissemination, and research papers. While having other duties such as postgraduate students training.
Most recently, Sadik achieved PRINCE2® Foundation Project Management certification. Before joining BCC, he was awarded an Elphinstone scholarship from the University of Aberdeen to study a PhD in the reliability and optimisation of composite materials. In 2018, he was recognised as a Chartered Engineer, Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (CEng MIMechE), and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). Earlier, Sadik completed an MSc degree at the University of South Wales, which was a fully funded scholarship. Whereas his past experience includes industrial positions (oil and gas, and construction).
In 2018, Sadik developed EasyPBC tool for homogenisation of composites and hybrid materials. For more details on EasyPBC please visit project's page on ResearchGate from here.
