Saber Fallah is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) at the University of Surrey, a past Research Associate and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Waterloo Centre for Automotive Research (WatCar), University of Waterloo, Canada, and a past Research Assistant at the Concordia Centre for Advanced Vehicle Engineering (CONCAVE), Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.

Currently, Dr Fallah is the director of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Lab (CAV-Lab) within the department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences. Since joining Surrey, he has contributed (either as PI or CoI) to securing around £13M total research funding (with a contribution to Surrey of about £8.5M) from EPSRC, Innovate UK, EU, KTP and industry.

Dr Fallah’s research has contributed to the state-of-the-art research in the areas of connected autonomous vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems. So far, his research has produced four patents (three filed by Jaguar Land Rover and one filed by General Motors Company of the USA), and more than 40 peer reviewed publications in high-quality journals and well-known conferences. He is also co-author of a textbook entitled Electric and Hybrid Vehicles: Technologies, modeling and control, (A mechatronics approach) which has been published by John Wiley publishing company in 2014. The book addresses the fundamentals of mechatronic design in hybrid and electric vehicles. Moreover, He is the co-editor of the book of conference proceedings resulted from the organisation of the TAROS 2017 conference published by Springer in 2017.

Dr Fallah is a fellow of higher education academy and completed the Graduate Seminar in Graduate Teaching at the University of Surrey and the Concordia University. He has collaborated with the Higher Education Department in a research and evaluation grant entitled “Bridging the Gap: the construction of shared meaning through feedback” to better understand of lecture feedback on teaching quality and students’ learning outcome. He also carried out a research on the effect of e-learning and developed online micro videos on the enhancement of students’ learning outcomes
