Dr. Muhammad Kashif Khan
Dr. Muhammad Kashif Khan joined the Coventry University in August 2015 as Lecturer in Aerospace Structures. He was awarded a PhD scholarship from UK, in 2006, on a project funded by Airbus, Germany. The project was a joint consortium of Airbus, The Open University, UK and Cranfield University, UK. He was selected for two years postdoctoral study in Sichuan University, China through “Young International Scientist Award 2011” from National Science Foundation of China (NSFC). He has worked in different aerospace companies and has published numerous papers on residual stresses, light weight engineering alloys, honeycomb structures and their behaviour up to extremely high loading cycles (109-1012).
His other curricular interests are space sciences, space policy/ laws and near earth objects (NEOs).
