Areas of expertise
- Precision Engineering
Dr Giusca expertise is in the metrology associated with the use of optical surface topography measuring instruments, surface texture and micro-coordinate measurements and analysis, design and build of primary instrumentation and in-line optical 2D/3D hybrid systems for roll-to-roll applications, as well as X-ray computed tomography.
Previous to Cranfield University, Dr Giusca was the lead scientist in Dimensional Surface Metrology group (DSM) at National Physical Laboratory, the UK’s national metrology institute. In that capacity, Dr Giusca managed a research portfolio worth approximately £1M per year. Most of the projects investigated surface-function relationships, which require multi-disciplinary research that combines a wide range of conventional engineering fields, such as laser machining, grinding, nano-fabrication, additive manufacturing, die casting and tribology, as well as more exotic fields like archaeology and dentistry. However, all projects have been focused on developing dimensional metrology solutions for process control and quality assurance, which include optical and tactile systems, algorithms, physical and documentary standards.
Giusca is a Senior Lecturer in Sensor Technology for Precision
In-process Measurement at Cranfield University, employed on metrology aspects
related to Advanced Manufacturing. Currently, Dr Giusca is focused on
developing in-line/in-process metrology with a growing interest in High
Natinal Physical Laboratory
