Foroogh Hosseinzadeh

Lecturer

My research interests lie in residual stresses (locked-in stresses) in engineering structures, experimental techniques for the measurement of residual stresses and fatigue and fracture of materials. I completed my BSc and MSc degrees in Mechanical Engineering and received my PhD in 2009 from the University of Bristol in the area of residual stress. I then joined the Materials Engineering Group at the Open University (OU) and was appointed as the lead researcher for a £1m “Contour Method Research Programme” funded by EMDA (East Midland Development Agency), Rolls Royce, LIoyd’s Register Foundation and the OU. In 2012 I moved to my current position as a Lecturer at the OU.
