Dr. Pratik Shukla
BEng (Hons), CIT, MScRes, PhD, CEng (MIMechE)
Dr Shukla obtained his Ph.D. in laser processing at Loughborough University. He is a chartered engineer (CEng) with the institution of mechanical engineers, and has over 18 years of experience in laser material processing and related phenomena. He has an international academic experience and industrial background in laser material processing and manufacturing engineering. Before commencing his PhD, he worked as a manufacturing engineer in aerospace/industrial turbine blade manufacturing and has held various academic positions in UK and abroad before commencing at Coventry University as a senior lecturer in Manufacturing Engineering and currently at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Ansty Park, Coventry, as a Senior Research Engineer in Laser Processing. He has published widely in laser processing and is also an editor-in-chief of the new "International Journal of Peening Science and Technology" and a Founding Director of Bright-Beams Ltd. He holds a keen interest in application of industrial lasers, laser technology in general, manufacturing engineering, materials science, and advanced ceramics in particular.
