Research Fellow, Faculty of Engineering



Mohammed Isa is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Nottingham. He obtained his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey in 2013. He later obtained his doctorate degree from Koc University, Istanbul in 2018. During his PhD program, Isa studied the fabrication and measurement of freeform surfaces by introducing a flexible additive manufacturing process plan that improves surface quality. He then joined the Manufacturing and Metrology Team of the University of Nottingham as a research fellow where he studied uncertainty modeling and systematic error correction of photogrammetric systems.

Expertise Summary

Isa's research interest in coordinate and surface topography measurement includes interferometry, laser triangulation, photogrammetry and precision motion systems. His research in optical 3D coordinate metrology uses machine vision, multi-view geometry and intelligent error modeling to improve measurement uncertainty.

Research Summary

▪ AI-enhanced integrated surface metrology (AI-SURF)

▪ Frequency scanning interferometry measurement in a High Accuracy Robotic System for Object Manipulation (HARISOM)

▪ Vision-based 3D Measurement for HARISOM
