About Mr. Aghdam

Nima Jafarzadeh Aghdam studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Tabriz from 2008 to 2015 and received his master’s degree in Applied Design. During his studies, in 2012, he won the Outstanding Student Award of the B.Sc. Program. From 2011 till 2016 he worked as a Design Engineer at Alupat Industries. Since 2016 he is a PhD candidate working at the Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lighweight Design to research and design lightweight crash structures. His dissertation discusses the topic of „Investigating thin walled structures behavior under crash loading“. In the summer term, he teaches Finite Element Methods im Lightweight . Over the years Mr. Aghdam developed a profound knowledge in the research fields of Crash, Shock Wave Propagation in Structures and Structural Health Monitoring.
