Atheer is a Postgraduate Researcher in the Vibration Engineering Section within the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

He graduated from the University of Anbar, Iraq in 2009 with a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering. Ranked 1st in the 2009 Class, Atheer was awarded a scholarship by the Higher Committee for Education Development in Iraq (HCED IRAQ) to further his studies. This enabled him to pursue an MSc programme at The University of Sheffield, where he obtained an M.Sc. (ENG) in Structural Engineering with Distinction in 2011. Following his graduation, he went back to Iraq and worked at the University of Anbar, first as an External Instructor, and then as an Assistant Lecturer. As a result of achieving the distinction in his M.Sc. programme, he was awarded his second scholarship in 2013 under the Academic Excellence Scheme awarded by HCED IRAQ to pursue a Ph.D. programme.

He joined the University of Exeter in July 2014 for his Ph.D. degree under the supervision of Prof Alex Pavic. His main research interests include vibration serviceability of lightweight floors.
