Ahmer Wadee is Professor of Nonlinear Mechanics in the Structures Section and leads the research group specializing in the field of Nonlinear Structural Stability. His primary research interests involve modelling buckling instabilities in metallic and composite material structures using analytical methods. In 2014, he was listed as one of the 100 leading UK practising scientists by The Science Council.
Ahmer has won prizes for his research work from the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. He serves as an Associate Editor for the international journal Thin-Walled Structures and on the Editorial Board of Structures, the research journal of the Institution of Structural Engineers. He is the current chairman of the Stability Committee of the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Institute (from October 2017). He was also co-editor of the book 50 Visions of Mathematics published by Oxford University Press.
Ahmer delivered his Professorial Inaugural Lecture in 2016. He is the Director of Postgraduate Research in the Department and oversees the academic progression of PhD students. In 2018, he received an Imperial President's Award for Excellence in Research Supervision.
