Jamal S. M. Zanjani is an assistant professor at the surface engineering and maintenance group within the faculty of engineering technology. He obtained both his Bachelor's and Master's in Polymers Engineering and a Ph.D. in Material science and Engineering with a research emphasis on the processing and mechanics of complex materials and composites.
His research focuses on creating correlations between processing, microstructure, properties, and product performance in multilateral hybrid structures. His group pays particular attention to the interphases and interfaces between the constituents as it is key to attain a reliable hybrid structure. His team develops experimental techniques as well as modeling tools to analyze and describe the physical mechanisms at the interface and exploit them for optimizing the short and long-term structural performances of hybrid structures.
His teaching activities cover different modules in mechanical engineering at undergraduate and graduate levels. He is also offering a graduate-level course on adhesion and bonding technologies.
