NSIRC PhD Student, Seyed Pedram.

An NSIRC PhD student has found employment with a leading ultrasonic testing technology company, which should directly benefit from the industry-relevance of his research.

Seyed Pedram has been snapped up by TWI subsidiary company Plant Integrity, a company that has been at the forefront of guided wave research since its formation in 1997. Plant Integrity produces and deploys the Teletest Focus+ family of long-range guided wave testing equipment, which is used to inspect pipelines and tubulars all over the world.

Seyed’s research is closely related to Plant Integrity’s work, focusing on ‘Signal processing, image analysis and feature recognition for long-range ultrasonic testing’. His work aims to pave the way to enhance the reliability of ultrasonic guided wave inspections, by increasing the signal-to-noise ratio and spatial resolution of the wave response – in turn enabling the detection of smaller defects and increased inspection range.

NSIRC would like to congratulate Seyed on his successful employment, and wish him continued success in his new role.
