I’m a fluid dynamicist with 15+ years experience in CFD and turbulence modeling research. From 2007 to 2011, I participated in and co-led CFD simulation projects to study turbulent/jet combustion systems, building aerodynamics and thermal equipment at the department of thermofluids of UTM, Malaysia. From 2013 to 2016, I lead CFD projects to study wind and marine turbine aerodynamics and hydrodynamics, respectively, with the department of mechanical engineering at AAST, Egypt. In the last five years, I have published more than 25 papers in leading journals in fluid mechanics and turbulence and secured $750K in research funding.
The current research focus for my work with Tohoku University, Japan, is hemodynamic turbulence. At the Institute of Fluid Science (IFS), I collaborate with Professor Makoto Ohta’s group to study the role of turbulence in the pathology of cerebral circulation. As a co-PI, I design research plans, methodologies and data analysis architecture for DNS and LES CFD projects of brain aneurysms, Moyamoya disease, intracranial stenosis and endovascular devices. I also contribute to the design of in vitro platforms utilizing laser velocimetry (PIV, LDV, LDA).
I am the founding (2009) and present Editor-in-Chief of CFD Letters, a Scopus indexed specialized peer-reviewed journal published by Akademia Baru, Malaysia. In 2013, I co-founded the Research Center for Computational Neurovascular Biomechanics (RCCNB), Alexandria University, Egypt. In 2018, I was awarded the affiliation of the African Academy of Sciences that is granted to recognize the scientific achievements of young scientists from African countries. In the last five years, I have chaired and co-chaired scientific sessions in international conferences in Japan, Egypt and Malaysia.
