Professor Dr Fazal Ahmad Khalid
Fazal Ahmad Khalid (born 31 December 1957), SI, PhD, CEng, is a Pakistani metallurgical engineer .
Professor Khalid has extensive experience of industry, teaching and research. His research interests are in the field of nanotechnology, automotive and engineering materials, in the interfacial and nanostructures in composites and alloys, development of orthopedic implants and prostheses and shape memory alloys, in the deformation and mechanical behaviour of tungsten, metallic alloys and composites at high strain rate, and high temperature oxidation behaviour of stainless steels and superalloys and processing of Al-diamond, Al-C60 Cu-CNT nanocomposites and Al-TiO2 mechanically alloyed nanomaterials.
While working as Research Fellow and Visiting Professor at Universities of Oxford and Leeds and Empa Swiss Federal Institute he has been involved in the research related to high strain rates deformation and hydocode modeling and structure/property relationships in metals and alloys and processing of composites for thermal management applications and nanotechnology. Earlier he worked as AXEN and Senior Engineer in Pakistan Steel Karachi and PCSIR Lahore, respectively.
Currently he is the vice-chancellor of University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore. He holds bachelor and advanced degrees of Metallurgical Engineering. He is a graduate of the same university.
