Dr. Zahur Ullah is a Lecturer in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and a member of the Advanced Composites Research Group at Queen's University Belfast, UK. Prior to joining QUB, he held an academic position at Ulster University. Zahur was a post-doc at the University of Glasgow between 2013 and 2017 and received his Ph.D. in computational solid mechanics from Durham University. He graduated with BSc from UET Peshawar, Pakistan and a MSc from UET Taxila, Pakistan, both in mechanical engineering. Zahur is a Chartered Engineer and a fellow of the higher education academy.
His research interests are mainly in computational mechanics. During his Ph.D., he worked on the development of adaptively coupled finite element-meshless methods for the solution of problems subjected to both material and geometrical nonlinearities. As a post-doc, he worked on the development of a finite element based multi-scale and multi-physics computational framework for the prediction of long-term performance of fibre-reinforced polymer composites subjected to harsh hygro-thermal environmental conditions in addition to mechanical loading. As a post-doc, he has also worked on the fracture prediction within graphite bricks and computational contact mechanics.
