Personal profile

Overview

I'm currently a lecturer in mechanical/structural engineering in the School of Engineering and Computing at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) where I'm a member of Engineering, Design and Manufacture (EDM) subject group and a member of the Institute of Engineering and Energy Technologies. 

I’m involved in teaching the following modules in mechanical and civil engineering:

-      Applied Engineering Science

-      Design Analysis 1

-      Engineering Mechanics

-      Design & Applications

-      Stress, strain & Structural Design

I believe that in the information age, interactive teaching, multidisciplinary research and bridging the gap between academia and industry are the keys to academic success. Therefore, through teaching, research and enterprise activities: I’m passionate about making a difference. 

Area of academic expertise - outline

My research interests span a broad range of areas in mechanical engineering and focusing largely on the mechanics of advanced materials including experimental studies and numerical simulations of the deformation and fracture behaviours of advanced materials under various loading regimes and at different length scales. In addition, I’m interested in developing and validating 3D dynamic models of the musculoskeletal system of the human body. 

Specific topics include the following:  

-      Experimental studies and Finite-element simulations of deformation and fracture behaviours of composites, biomimetic materials and biological materials under various loading regimes and at different length scales. 

-      Experimental studies and numerical simulations of the musculoskeletal system of the human body.

Desired research direction

-      Applications of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and optimization (size, shape and topology) in studying the deformation and fracture behaviours of advanced materials.

-      Applications of magnetorheological fluid (MRF) in the biomedical field and active vibrations.

-      Experimental studies and numerical simulations of the mechanical behaviour of smart materials including piezoelectric, magnetostrictive, shape memory alloys and pyroelectric materials 

Target collaborative companies

Companies with the interest in developing, manufacturing and utilizing advanced materials such as composites, biomimetic materials, biological materials and biomedical devices.
