Biography

Professor Nadjai is currently the Director of Fire Safety Engineering Research Technology Centre. This involved developing strategic leadership in research, higher learning and operational management of the state of the art and unique laboratories in fire Science in UK and all the Ireland. Professor Nadjai has built a distinguished career in the field of fire safety, becoming a respected researcher and author in this field. Professor Nadjai was educated at Annaba University (BEng (H, 1985), Heriot-Watt University (MSc, 1988) and the University of Sheffield (PhD, 1992). After three year working as a research Fellow in Nottingham Trent University, Professor Nadjai joined the University of Ulster in 1995 as a Lecturer, was promoted to Reader in 2000 and became full professor in fire structural engineering in 2005.ResearchProfessor Nadjai conducts his research at the university's internationally acclaimed FireSERT facility. He has been awarded several sources of grant from EPSRC, FW6, FW7, USA, South Korean government and industrial research development bringing a total contribution over £ 10 Million pounds. He has published over 120 papers in books, journals and conferences. He is also author of several design guides for the fire design of structures, which are extensively used by practitioners throughout the world.PhD supervisionProfessor Nadjai has supervised twenty recent successful PhD projects in fire and currently supervises eight research students working on experimental and analytical structural/materials and protection fire engineering projects.
