Dr. A. Azam

Profile

Dr. Abdullah Azam is currently working as a Research fellow (Jan. 2018 - ) at the Institute of Functional Surfaces in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds within an EPSRC funded grant (www.friction.org.uk) "Friction - The tribology enigma" towards developing a numerical framework to facilitate the prediction of friction in soft poroelastic systems.  

Dr. Abdullah worked as a Research Fellow at the University of Leeds (March 2014 - March 2017) working on the development of numerical tools to enable the study of the interfacial chemistry that involves interactions between lubrication, tribochemistry and contact mechanics.

He completed his PhD in the Institute of Functional Surfaces, School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds in 2018.

Abdullah was working as a teaching professional at the University of Lahore, in Pakistan before joining University of Leeds (October 2012 to January 2014). He did his MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences (PIEAS), Islamabad, Pakistan in 2012. His thesis was related to modelling the morphology of nanoparticles and in general using atomistic modelling techniques to back up and complement experimental work.

He completed his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in 2010, from U.E.T. Lahore, Pakistan.
