Current Positions:Associate Professor (Structural Engineering)
Biography:A/Prof. Neaz Sheikh obtained Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET), Bangladesh. He obtained MPhil and PhD in Structural Engineering from the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong. Immediately after his BSc (Eng), he was appointed as a Lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering at CUET. Before joining at the University of Wollongong in 2007, he was a Research Fellow in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Sherbrooke, Canada. He has held/holds visiting appointments in several internationally reputed universities.
A/Prof Sheikh is an internationally recognized expert in Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics. He has gained national and international research reputation for his extensive research on low to moderate seismic regions. He has authored over 100 articles in highly reputed international journals and conference proceedings. His applied research has contributed to the development of several standards and codes of practice. He has supervised to completion six PhD graduates and currently supervising nine PhD students. He is a regular reviewer for research articles submitted to highly ranked journals encompassing structural engineering, earthquake engineering, and protective structures. He is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering.
