Career Summary

Gihad Ibrahim received a first-class B.Eng. (Hons) degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the School of Engineering, University of Wolverhampton, UK in 2008 and a Ph.D. from the Department of Engineering, University of Leicester, UK in 2015. His research efforts aim towards multiphysics modelling of complex biological systems. As part of his PhD, he developed an integrated computational framework for dynamic subject-specific modelling of the pulmonary flow using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and low-resolution computed tomography (CT). The outcome of this computational framework is expected to move the CFD-based investigation of lung functions to the next stage. The teaching experience of Dr Ibrahim focuses on the design, the simulation and the analysis of mechanical and mechatronics engineering systems. He also teaches modules related to manufacturing processes, computer aided manufacturing (CAM) and robotics. Dr Ibrahim is a full member of the Institute of Physicist and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) and an associate member of the UK Institute of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE). He is a quick learner and a self-motivated researcher. He has demonstrated the ability to solve a variety of analytical, technical, and practical problems using creative and innovative approaches.
