Personal profile


Scott Millen is a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast. Currently, Scott is a member of the Advanced Composites Research Group (ACRG), modelling and assessing impact damage in efoil-powered composite marine structures.

Scott joined the staff of Queen's in 2019 and again in 2021 and has a MEng Mechanical Engineering degree where he gained sixteen months of industrial engineering experience. He received his PhD in computational modelling of composite materials in Mechanical Engineering from Queen's University Belfast in 2019. Scott has experience of developing complex, high-fidelity tools using ABAQUS, Python and Fortran, in particular integrating Python and Fortran with ABAQUS, and benchmarked, composite material models with damage mechanics.

During his PhD, Scott received three travel scholarships (2019 ICOLSE Conference Scholarship, 2018/19 Emily Sarah Montgomery Travel Scholarship, 2018/19 Peter Benham Travel Award) and created, advised and supported three undergraduate student projects.

After completing his PhD Scott took up a research fellow role within the ACRG where the project required working closely with local industrial collaborators from the aerospace industry to generate a series of spreadsheet tools for composite material property prediction.

Research Interests

Scott’s research interests are focused on numerical modelling, in particular:

  • Finite elements and numerical methods,
  • Damage and fracture mechanics,
  • Lightning strike modelling,
  • Composite materials and computational modelling.
