Dr Hessam Ghasemnejad

School/Department: Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering
Position: Senior Lecturer in Composite Materials

Biography

Dr. Hessam Ghasemnejad is Senior Lecturer in Composite Materials in the School of Aerospace and Aircraft Engineering, Kingston University London. He was awarded a PhD in Composite Structures in 2009 following successful completion of his MSc with Distinction in Automotive Engineering from Kingston University, London. He was appointed as lecturer in Engineering Design in 2009 and two years later he was promoted to Senior Lecturer position.

His main research areas are structural health monitoring and protection mechanisms of composite aircraft structures under various loading conditions such as buckling, post-buckling, fatigue, impact and crash. He has regularly published the outcomes of his research in international peer-reviewed journals. He is member of EPSRC peer review college and also he acts as member of editorial board and scientific committees of international journals and conferences.
