am commonly known as Ali Meshkot.
My full name is [Seyed Mohammad Ali Meshkot] and here is the meaning:
||A religious title which indicates that I am a
direct descendant of the Prophet Mohammad's (pbuh) family line. In fact
I am a Tabatabaie Seyed, which means that both my parents are also
||From the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) meaning praised.
This is my First Name following my religious title. However,
I do not often use this. In Western/Christian culture, it is
usually assumed that people go by their first name; whereas in many
parts of the world, people with more than one forename select which
name they go by, and I have selected Ali for its simplicity.
||Ali means "the best".
||This is my surname from the Holy Koran meaning
Source of Light and Knowledge.
In order to achieve the correct English pronunciation, in April 1985 I
changed the French spelling Meshkāt to the English spelling Meshkot by
deed pole. The spelling remains the same in complex script.

||Doctor of Philosophy
My research was on amorphous metal alloy compositions (also known as
glassy metals because, like glass, they have little or no crystal
structure). This work involved predictive computer
programming and many laboratory and foundry high temperature
experiments with molten alloys at 1800°C using an induction furnace
and a high pressure powder injection unit, both of which I designed and
||Master of Science
This examination and research course on the molecular science of
materials, involved atomic physics, Eigen functions and x-ray
spectroscopic analysis on the one hand; and research involving the
compaction of irregular natural sand particles on the other.
A simple method was devised, using a flow-cone, to predict the strength
of cement mortar mixes by plotting their flow-time on triangular
Diploma (H.N.D) Certificate
For my HND I spent an enjoyable 2 years on my own in Sunderland UK,
where I kept out of mischief, studied hard and designed and built an
apparatus to measure the internal friction of glass fibres in torsional
Transmission Electron Microscopy Certificate
The electron microscope is a powerful examination tool which, like
computing, can pull the fascinated into its exclusive
domain. I enjoyed this fascinating course and went on to use
this powerful tool in my work and in teaching.
of Proficiency in English
I think my English always has room for improvement. This must
be because I have only ever read one fiction book through to the end
('2001') and that was a present from my boss. But I did enjoy reading
that a lot.
I think this is the only computing certificate I have from the old
Apple II computer days of early 1980s. This is because I have
taught myself almost all I know about computing and I went on to work
in this field. I remember at school (1975), our head of
mathematics department use to tell me off for staying behind after
school time to use the school's only
teletype terminal. I learned to teach myself
computing from then because even our teachers didn't know enough about
using computers. I have always used a combination of computer
based training (CBT) and experiments to teach myself.
This was my way of doing something for the community. This
training and the subsequent involvement with people in clinics,
surgeries, hospitals, courts and government departments has taught me a
lot about cultural differences, the diversity in people and the many
problems we can share.
|Bilingual Advocacy in
Health Certificate (Pending)
This course has followed on from my interpreting work.
Bilingual advocacy is about empowering disadvantaged people who speak
little or no English, to overcome language and cultural barriers to get
through medical problems without discrimination.
