Brief Biography

Dr. Shah is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Mathematics and Engineering Education at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) with research interests in applied mathematics (nonlinear dynamics, analytical mechanics and mathematical modelling) as well as mathematics and engineering education pedagogy (diversification of STEM curricula, threshold concepts and concept inventories, university-industry and community partnerships, embedding ethics and sustainability in mathematics, history of mathematics and physics).

He is also the School Lead for Inclusive Scholarship for the Centre for Academic Inclusion in Science and Engineering (CAISE) at QMUL, the Research Seminars Coordinator for the Centre for Research in Engineering and Materials Education (CREME), the School EDI Education Champion and a Queen Mary Research Integrity Champion. His work in these areas was also nominated for the QMUL Education Excellence Award.

In addition to this, he is also an Associate Member of the UCL Centre for Engineering Education (CEE) and serves as the Chair of the Ethics Ambassador Community for the Engineering Professors Council (EPC). He also serves as the Institute of Mathematics (IMA) Academic Representative for QMUL.

He completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics (Nonlinear Dynamics) at University College London (UCL), where he also taught on a wide range of courses in mathematics, physics and engineering for which he received multiple UCL Teaching Excellence Awards. In addition to this, he is an accredited Fellow (FHEA) of the UK Higher Education Academy and has also been a Guest Mathematics Teacher at the London School of Economics (LSE).

Prior to this, he taught GCSE and A-Level Mathematics as a full-time secondary school teacher at several independent schools across London. He also has an MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing from the University of Oxford (St. Anne's College) and a BEng in Mechanical Engineering with Business Finance from UCL.
