Dr. Kamran A. Khan received both M.S. and Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University, USA. Prior to joining Khalifa University of Science Technology and Research he was a postdoctoral researcher at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). His research interests includes development of experimentally validated constitutive theories for small and large deformation multi-scale and multi-physics behavior of polymers, metals, soft active materials, composites and light weight structures, and the associated numerical implementation, which has applications in aerospace, automotive, microelectronics and biomedical engineering. The focus is to develop computational tools that can effectively predict the response of advanced multifunctional materials and structures. He has authored several articles in peer-reviewed journal and conference proceedings. He is currently a reviewer of the several international research journals. Dr. Kamran is a senior member of the Association of Former students at Texas A&M and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
