Dr. Scott Millen

Post-doctoral researcher

Research Staff

Dr. Scott Millen is a Research Fellow in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast. Scott is currently a member of the Advanced Composites Research Group (ACRG), modelling and assessing impact damage in efoil-powered composite marine structures. He was awarded his PhD in computational modelling of composite materials from Queen's University Belfast in 2019.

Scott joined the staff of Queen's in 2019 and again in 2021 working as a research fellow role within the ACRG working with several local industrial collaborators including Spirit Aerosystems, Collins Aerospace (UK), Hexcel and most recently, Artemis Technologies.

Scott has experience of developing high-fidelity models and tools using ABAQUS, Python and Fortran, and composite material models with damage mechanics.

Scott’s research interests are focused on numerical modelling, in particular:

  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and numerical methods,
  • Low velocity impact (LVI) and compression after impact (CAI)
  • Lightning strike and extreme event modelling,
  • Composite materials and computational modelling.
