Personal profile

Personal Statement

Dr. Meisam Jalalvand is Chancellor’s Fellow and Lecturer in Composite Structures at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
He is an expert in failure analysis of composite materials and develops analytical and Finite Element methods to understand, predict and optimise composite structures. Prior to current appointment, he was working at the University of Bristol as a Senior Research Associate, leading the development of pseudo-ductile hybrid composites that fail gradually rather than catastrophically. He has also been active in the invention of the passive overload-sensors, a novel technology for structural health monitoring without any electronics. His other research interests include: structural repairs using composites, new test methods, and nature-inspired material design.
Dr Jalalvand is interested in taking enthusiastic PhD students.
