Associate Professor, Department of Aerospace Engineering 

Dr. Kamran Ahmed Khan is an Assistant Professor in Aerospace Engineering at Khalifa University of Science and Technology, UAE. He received both his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University, USA. Before joining Khalifa University, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Khan's research interests include the development of experimentally validated macro/micro/nano-mechanics-based constitutive theories for small and large deformation multi-scale and multi-physics behavior of polymers, metals, particulate composites, fiber reinforced composites, metamaterials, smart materials, architected materials, multifunctional composites and advanced manufacturing processes simulation, and the associated numerical implementation. He is an accomplished researcher in the field of coupled thermo-mechanical behavior of materials and structures for efficient thermo-mechanical systems and mechanics of soft materials. He has been recently focused on manufacturing simulation of advanced composites, characterization and thermo-mechanical modeling of additively manufactured metamaterials, light weight smart and multifunctional architected materials for healthcare, automotive, aerospace structure and energy applications. Professor Kamran has published over 50 publications in archival journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Khan has served as the principle/co-principal investigator of more than five projects, amounting to more than $1.1 million,  sponsored by various agencies and industries. He has led several collaborative research and industrial sponsored projects including supervising M.S., Ph.D., and Postdoctoral Fellows. He is currently a reviewer of several international research journals. He is also a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Association of Former students at Texas A&M University.
