Senior Lecturer and Coordinator of Engineering Assessment
Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: PhD in Civil Engineering, Dalhousie University
Research Areas: computational structural mechanics, fatigue and fracture mechanics of adhesively bonded joints, mechanics of fiber reinforced polymer composites, risk and reliability-based structural design methods
Khaled Shahin is a senior Civil Engineering lecturer at NYU Abu Dhabi, specializing in structural mechanics and fiber-reinforced polymer composite materials. Before joining NYUAD, Shahin served as an assistant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Abu Dhabi University, UAE, and prior to that as a senior research engineer at Lloyd’s Register - Martec Ltd. in Halifax, Canada. While at Lloyd’s Register, Shahin completed a two-year postdoctoral industrial R&D fellowship focusing on the reliability-based design of marine composite structures.
This fellowship was funded in part by the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Shahin received his PhD in Civil Engineering from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada where he also completed his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering. As a graduate student, he was the recipient of numerous national academic awards, including the prestigious Killam Predoctoral Scholarship.
His research interests include computational structural mechanics, fatigue and fracture mechanics of adhesively bonded joints, mechanics of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, and risk and reliability-based structural design methods.
