Dr Shadi Ostovari joined University of Greenwich in November 2010 after receiving her PhD, which was sponsored by Arup at UCL. Her PhD was focused on linear and nonlinear dynamic analysis of roof shells under earthquake loading. Shadi gained her MSc in structural and earthquake engineering at Carleton University in Canada with a Distinction, and gained a First class BSc Hons (equivalent to BEng Hons in British education) in civil engineering. She was awarded a PGCert in Higher Education in 2012 at University of Greenwich and became a Fellow of Higher Education (FHE).

Shadi has seven years’ experience in industry as structural engineer working at Consultant Engineering Company, TOP Consultancy Company and Advanced Technology Group, Arup since 1996. She has 14 years’ experience in academia, working as teaching assistant and lecturer at BIHE, Carleton University, UCL and the University of Greenwich.

Shadi is a member of International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures (IASS) Working Group 05 (Concrete roof shell) since 2013.

The main focus of her research has been dynamic analysis of shell structures and linear and nonlinear dynamic analysis of structures. She is currently teaching mathematics (first year), analysis and design for seismic action (at MSc level), integrated project (4th year MEng), and computation (Year zero Extended Beng Degree).
