Dr. Katrib is an assistant professor at the University of Nottingham where he is responsible for leading the design of novel technologies to deliver bespoke microwave heating systems and inspection/monitoring technologies. During his current role he operates in a range of different market areas - including healthcare, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals and novel materials - developing new microwave technology (heating and sensing) to deliver solutions to unmet market or customer needs. Dr. Katrib has over 10 years' R&D experience, and has worked on several projects that have led to system prototype demonstration in an operational environment.
He has multiple granted patents across technology domains including microwave heating systems design, mineral processing and leaching. Throughout his career he has had a variety of responsibilities including running training courses, leading research, technology and business development, business strategy, planning and evaluation, and leadership. He has extensive experience in dielectric properties measurements, process design, monitoring and inspection technologies, microwave heating technologies.

My research focuses on the development of non-traditional inspection and monitoring technologies to optimise industrial systems. I am particularly interested in developing new monitoring tools and inspection techniques for use in harsh environment processes and high value manufacturing sectors including aerospace, green chemicals and biomedical engineering. In these competitive markets product differentiation is often directly linked to additional functionality or performance. Through the development of new monitoring technologies and inspection tools we endeavour to deliver this. I am currently leading with our industrial sponsor an innovate UK project aiming to design, develop and commercialise a new monitoring technique to transform and simplify the operation of all steam boilers whilst vitally improving safety levels.
Opportunities are available in several of the above areas. For informal enquiries, please contact Juliano with a cover letter and CV detailing your experience and interests.
I welcome enquiries from potential PhD candidates from Home, EU and international countries who are interested in the following research areas: Electromagnetic sensing, in-situ monitoring of component integrity, novel sensing technologies for healthcare application, detection of corrosion under insulation, real-time monitoring, novel microwave applicators for material processing, high performance computing, multiphysics simulations
