A Little Bit About Me
30 year old hands on (yet fiercely academic) Doctor of Engineering. More into precision engineering than precision male grooming.
Bournemouth UK, right next to Bournemouth beach. It's no Miami, but they do serve some decent English rosemary seasoned roast beef with buckets of gravy (I can't find anything more positive to say I'm afraid).
British citizen, family based in London, one younger brother (25, software engineer/programmer). I technically don't have a permanent location now, as I live/work in four countries (part of my job); Germany (Munich and Uckermunde), the Czech Republic (Hradec Kralove), Mexico (Mexico City, wearing a bulletproof vest), and probably the closest thing to heaven on earth (or at least in the Liaoning province), Dalian China. I do see myself permanently located to our China division in the magnificent coastal city of Dalian. It's not for everyone, so please be aware of this.
Joy Bangla, happy 50th independence anniversary and all that. I don't identify as a Desi like Hindi/urdu speaking people. Or khet Bengali's.
Ph.D in materials science (metallurgy) and advanced manufacturing technology. Did a lot of work on additive manufacturing of metals (3D printing). BEng in Mechanical Engineering. I'm looking for someone with a postgrad education, preferably in STEM. But the latter is not a hardset requirement
Materials scientist (metallurgist) in the automotive industry. I develop advanced alloys and hybrid materials, bonding materials that otherwise do not like to adhere to each other (like you and me). It takes a lot of cunning to bring dissimilar materials together. But I don't think electron-beam welding is the answer to sustaining a marriage between very dissimilar personalities, just to be clear.
If you drive a VW, Skoda, Audi, or Porsche, there's a chance your brake discs (among other things) are made by us. Using a very elaborate and technical process, partially developed by yours truly.
Which means it'll probably fall apart. Drive carefully :)
I work in four countries (as mentioned prior). My company airdrops me from the sky, a bit like Master Chief from Halo. I get to shape the future of the global automotive industry through materials science and advanced manufacturing technologies.
Drawing romantically themed stuff like tanks, artillery, fighter jets, nuclear submarines, and so on. I make models of them too. My house looks like a museum. 50 shades of naval grey
Play the bass guitar
HIke around mountains like Sam from Death Stranding
I'm so metal I did a Ph.D. on metallurgy. Much like Black Sabbath was Ozzy Osbourne's ticket out of Birmingham, it's my ticket out of post Brexit, post-industrial banana republic of Britain.
I'm also the most materialistic person you'll come across. Only I'm more interested in making things. Things that define human civilization I suppose. We developed it, we made it work, and it makes us who we are. From the stone age to the modern nano-materials age, the stage of human civilization is categorized by our mastery of certain materials. Believe it or not, even after 8000 years, we STILL have not mastered Iron and Steel. We lack the full scientific understanding of what goes on at a microstructural level. So you can say, we are still stuck on the Iron age. Or at least I am, as it's my job to master iron and steel (as a ferrous metallurgist) for society's benefit. Like our Iron age ancestors.
What I Am Looking For
1. Genuinely passionate about something in life. Something you can talk about effortlessly for hours on.
2. This is not a hard requirement, but It'll be nice to meet someone who had to struggle to get to where they are right now, as I did. Someone who didn't have things so easy. I think we'll just have better stories to tell each other that way
3. Open-minded, forward-thinking, and ambitious. By ambitious, I mean ambition beyond making one's life a little bit more comfortable. Ambitions that are much grander in scale, preferably
4. I yield sufficient self-conviction of my religious belief to not have a huge list of religiosity requirements to demand of you. I don't particularly get along with those who do. It's an individual journey between them and God. I think outside intervention does more harm than good. It's a religion, not a cult. But you need to be a Muslim and aim to raise your future children as a Muslim. I don't want to get political, but I prefer if you're secular in your mindset, and don't try to shoehorn your religious interpretation onto others. Lakum Dinakum Waliyadin
5. Within 28-32 age range, please :)
6. I'm NOT open to divorces, annulments, etc
