Seyed Ahmad Fazelzadeh (b. 1967 @ Shiraz-Iran) is currently Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Shiraz University in Iran. He obtained the B.Sc. degree (Honors) in Mechanical Engineering in 1991 from the Shiraz University. He received the M.Sc. degree in Applied Mechanics and Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 1994 and 2002, respectively.

His research and teaching span over 28 years and his expertise in the  fields  of Aeroelasticity, Green Aviation, Electric Aircraft Design, Aircraft Wing Design, Structural Stability,  Flight Dynamics and Control, Optimal Control, Nano

Composites, Smart Structures, Metamaterials, Thermal Stresses and Reliability Analysis. Also, He has advised 10 PhD and 35 MS graduates. To his credit thus far he has three books, seven book chapters, over 130 technical papers in prestigious journals, 135 papers in the international conference proceedings and one national Patent.

His name was indicated in the list of World's Top 2% Scientists by Stanford University and Scopus 2020 -2022.

He was a Visiting Research Professor at the Zienkiewicz Centre for Computational Engineering, Swansea University, UK, and Department of Aerospace Science and Technology at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2018 and 2020, respectively.

Dr Fazelzadeh serves on the Editorial Boards of Applied Mathematical Modelling (Elsevier), Journal of Mechanics of Advanced Composite Structures, Iranian Journal of Science and Technology, Transaction of Mechanical Eng. (Springer) and Sharif Journal of Mechanical Engineering. He also served as a reviewer for high prestige Journals. He has been awarded the “Outstanding Contribution In Reviewing” certificates by Elsevier for peer-reviewing services of International Journal of Mechanical Sciences, Journal of Fluids and Structures, and Aerospace Science and Technology.

He is an active researcher and dedicated teacher and has received numerous awards and recognitions for excellence in teaching and research.

In the 50th anniversary celebration of Sharif University of Technology, he was chosen by Sharif University of Technology as one of its fifty distinguished alumni in 2016. He is a member of the Iranian Society of Mechanical Engineering and was elected as distinguished professor in 2018.

Also, Dr Fazelzadeh and colleagues received COMSTECH Award for the best scientific book (2021).
