Dr Ulises Hernandez is Research and Engagement Fellow in the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Research Group (Manufacturing Metrology Team) and Midlands Centre for Data-Driven Metrology of the University of Nottingham. Ulises obtained a PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Nottingham and recently completed a senior leader master degree program underpinned by an executive MBA at Nottingham Trent Univesity. Ulises studied a MSc in optical-mechatronics, a BSc in Physics and he has worked as Optics & Photonics (R&D) engineer in the industry for 3 years. His R&D work has demonstrated the practical applications of optical fibre technology in the fields of sports, healthcare and now he is exploring their applications into optical metrology and the digital manufacturing sector.
Ulises responsibilities in the Midlands Centre for Data-Driven Metrology include the engagement with SMEs, deliver short research projects in digital manufacturing and showcase the research capabilities of the research group.
