Contact Details


Shahin Jalili has joined the School of Engineering of the University of Aberdeen in early 2020 as a Research Fellow working on the Decom Tools project funded by the European Union. Previously, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Computer Science Department of the University of Exeter, where he was working on the Optimisation of Transportation Networks of the UK. His main areas of expertise are structural engineering, transportation engineering, and engineering optimisation.

His research interests focus on problems that link engineering, computer science and mathematical science, with particular emphasis on optimisation methods and numerical algorithms. He has developed a series of numerical approaches for various optimisation problems in different branches of engineering, ranging from optimum design problems of skeletal and composite structures to performance optimisation of traffic transportation networks. He has also worked on the mathematical aspects of finite element analysis by application of polynomial vector extrapolation methods and developed new structural and sensitivity reanalysis formulations to reduce computational complexity.

In the Decom Tools project, he investigates the cost and environmental impacts of wind farm decommissioning projects in the North Sea region. The project engages different European partners and stakeholders in the North Sea region to provide a comprehensive approach by considering different aspects of offshore wind farm decommissioning, such as logistics, safety, ship design and up-/recycling. The main objective of the Decom Tools project is to reduce the cost and greenhouse gas emissions of offshore decommissioning operations. Recently, the Decom Tools project supported him to start the development of the Decommissioning Decision Support System (DDSS) software for offshore wind farm decommissioning projects in the North Sea region.
