University of Huddersfield researcher, Dr Hussam Muhamedsalih has been awarded the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers’ Beloe Fellowship.
The London-based Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers is a modern livery company with roles that include aiding government policy in measurement standards. It makes several awards, the highest of which is the Beloe Fellowship, which supports an outstanding post-doctoral researcher with £5,000 per year over three years.
Dr Muhamedsalih is working on improvements to the interferometer, which has exceptional potential in many areas of advanced manufacturing, such as solar energy, printable electronics and medical devices.
His three years as a SIM Fellow is now underway, although he will be invested at an event in October, when he will don the ceremonial robes.
