Mohammad joined the University of Glasgow as a lecturer in September 2019 and his expertise lies in composites design, manufacturing and integrity. He is currently working on generative design, lightweight/smart bio-inspired composites, 4D printed self-morphing structures and multi-functional materials. He has made innovations in designing high-performance composite T-joints, Pseudo-ductile and notch insensitive composites, and novel damage detection methods.
Before joining Glasgow, Mohammad was as a lecturer at the University of the West of England and previously led the Hybrid Composites developments in the HiPerDuCT programme (EP/I02946X/1), as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol. He also has 3 years of industrial experience in R&D activities including reverse engineering, manufacturing, CAD/CAM and material analysis.
Mohammad graduated with honoured MSc and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering (manufacturing and production), both his MSc and PhD theses were on acoustic emission-based damage monitoring of composites, and were singled out for their quality in a University-wide assessment. He is in editorial board of international journals: Composite Materials, Science publishing group, and Journal of engineering and technology.
