Dr. Azam Khan is a Structural Engineer with 10+ years of United Kingdom’s Oil & gas and building industry experience.  He did BSc in Civil Engineering from UET Peshawar. He completed MSc in Concrete Structures in 2004, leading to PhD in Structural Mechanics from Imperial College London, 2008.  He has an extensive experience in civil and structural engineering facilities, such as offshore oil and gas platforms, wind turbine substructure, offshore bridges and flare towers, industrial and non-industrial building structures. He has developed a non-linear finite element software capable of analysing structures under extreme dynamic loading.
