Dr Bahareh Zaghari 

Research Fellow

Bahareh is working on the design of smart systems, such as the next generation of jet engines and smart cities. Expert at instrumentation, ultrasonic waves, embedded systems, and nonlinear energy harvesting in harsh environments. Experienced at working with the biomechanical, automotive, and aerospace industries, both from her current academic position and as part of her previous consultancy roles as a system engineer.

Bahareh is a PI for the CICL project; an EPSRC-funded, which was part of a platform grant obtained by Prof. Steve Beeby. The project goal is to improve the wellbeing of cyclists, by using energy harvesting and wireless energy transfer technologies. Bahereh is a researcher for the I2BS project funded by Clean Sky H2020, which aims to design smart jet engines through collaboration with Safran aerospace engines manufacturer in France, and FAG Schaeffler jet engines bearing manufacturer in Germany. Bahareh has published several journal and conference papers in the field of instrumentation, guided waves in solid media, energy harvesting and nonlinear dynamics.

Her awards are as following:

  • Northrup Grumman Award 2018/19 to design an energy harvester demonstrator.
  • 5th LRF-ICON 2018 award to fund a PhD student on a topic related to high temperature measurement on static and rotating machinery.
  • Internal EPSRC platform grant as a PI for CICL project.
  • Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) funding to travel to the University of Auckland in 2014 to work with Prof. Brian Mace’s research group.
  • Internship grant from nCATS at the University of Southampton to supervise a student for 8 weeks in 2018.
  • Internship grant from ECS summer program and MENSUS program to supervise a student for 10 weeks in 2018.
  • EPSRC summer bursary grant to supervise a student for 12 weeks in 2017.
  • Best student paper award in system diagnosis in the 19th International Conference on Automation and Computing (ICAC), UK in 2013.

Bahareh has been an invited speaker for:

  • Linear vibration energy harvesting, NiPS summer school 2018, Italy.
  • Golden rules of PhD life, Festival of Doctoral Research, 2018.
  • My career after PhD, University of Southampton, Signal processing and control group away day, 2018.

  • Overview of women in engineering activities, university open days, 2013-2018.
  • Seismology techniques to find buried objects, 4th Iranian Pipe and Pipeline Conference, 2012.

She is also involved in other activities such as:

  • Reviewing a book with 40 chapters. Reviewing papers for two journals.
  • Supervising a PhD student, interns, part three and GDP students.
  • Involved in several consultancy jobs: Project with Pall group in 2016 and Virgin Media in 2018.
  • Teaching part of Robotic Systems ELEC3201 module.
  • Teaching assistance for dynamics, electronics modules, drives and control tutorials, instrumentation workshops, mathematics workshops and mechatronics laboratory sessions.
  • WiSET+ steering group member and Women in Engineering events organiser.
