Dr Meisam Jalalvand is Lecturer in Composite Materials and Structures within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

His research interests include high performance hybrid composites as well as natural fibre and biodegradable composites with the aim of achieving better understanding, performance, safety and sustainability. These will help tackling urgent challenges, including global warming and plastic pollution. Dr Jalalvand has led several research projects in the aforementioned areas funded by EPSRC, Royal Academy of Engineering, British Council and Scottish Funding Council.

Dr Jalalvand graduated with BSc, MSc and PhD in Aerospace Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology in Tehran. During his PhD, he studied the interaction of delamination and matrix cracking in composite laminates using his inhouse nonlinear Finite Element code.

He was appointed as Research Associate in 2012 and Senior Research Associate in 2016 at the University of Bristol. Dr Jalalvand joined the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow as a Chancellor’s Fellow in 2017 until 2020 when he started to work at the University of Southampton.

Dr Jalalvand considers supervising enthusiastic students.
