    Mr Hadi Moztarzadeh is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer (CEng) with a background in both academia and industry. Hadi is the Senior Technology Officer at WMG Centre High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult, leading WMG's cross-centre portfolio.

    The main scope of Hadi's role is to shape the technology strategy of WMG Centre and High Value Manufacturing Catapult and to drive collaboration across the seven HVM Catapult Centres, primarily through a diverse range of cross-centre Strategy Teams, Technology Forums and Large Transformational Projects (LTPs). His collaborative role along with other HVMC's CTOs and STOs positions WMG and HVM Catapult as a thought leader, policy influencer and delivery mechanism to accelerate the uptake and exploitation of research and development for future growth and competitiveness of the UK manufacturing sector.

    Working directly with the CEO and the CTO of WMG Centre, Hadi has been developing the five-year delivery plan and the annual work-plan of WMG HVM Catapult; incorporating WMG's research and development programmes into delivery of the HVMC's strategic objectives.

    Hadi also provides technical leadership and support for lightweight materials and digital manufacturing research programmes at WMG (with a focus on Electric Vehicles requirements) to achieve Low Emission Mobility in the UK. Mr Moztarzadeh has been involved in a range of research activities from proposal/bid writing to supervising research projects and conference/journal publications. He has led three research projects to determine residual stress and microstructural evolution in Additive Manufacturing process of metallic parts in collaboration with ESRF and ILL, Grenoble France and ANSTO in Australia.

    Prior to joining the Catapult team, Hadi was a Course Manager in the Applied Engineering Programme (AEP) and the academic lead for accreditation of the AEP with professional bodies and the Engineering Council. He led a number of courses in the School of Engineering and WMG's professional programmes in both UG and PG levels in the UK and overseas.

    Mr Moztarzadeh is a CEng and a committee member of the IMechE Midlands region and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA). Hadi is the academic liaison of the IMechE at WMG and supports professional registration of the academics and research staff across different disciplines with the IMechE and IET. Hadi is the Honorary Treasurer of the Birmingham IMechE Automotive Division and sits on the professional registration panel with the IMechE and the Engineering Council.
