Brief Biography:

Zahra Sharif Khodaei is a senior lecturer in aero-structures. She obtained her PhD from Czech Technical University in Prague in numerical modelling of functionally graded materials in 2008. Prior to her lectureship post in 2014, she was a research associate at Imperial College London, department of Aeronautics since 2009 where she conducted research in fatigue modelling and analysis of metallic and Fibre Metallic Laminates (FML) and more significantly in developments of technologies and methodologies for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of composite structures.
