Ghazanfarah (Farah) Hafeez, PhD



Dr. Hafeez received her Ph.D. degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and M.E.Sc. degree in Structural Engineering from Western University, London, Ontario, in Canada. Her Bachelors of Engineering (B-Eng) is from NED University, Karachi, Pakistan. Following her education, she worked in the industry to design wood buildings, roads and highways, and ports and harbours.

She joined Concordia University in August 2020. Her research interests include the in-situ performance of timber buildings, the dynamic behaviour of post-and-beam buildings, and field measurements of wood structural systems.
