Personal Statement

I am a KTP associate at the Department of Biomedical Engineering in collaboration with Brightwake Ltd. My current research is focusing on developing a new generation of wound care management devices using vacuum therapy.

I did my undergrad in Biomedical Engineering in 2007, and then I worked in industry for 4 years in the health care industry. Installing new and servicing old medical devices in hospitals and clinics. After that, I moved to Strathclyde University to continue my postgraduate studies, where I did MSc in Biomedical Engineering in 2012, and then a PhD in the same filed in 2017.

My main body of work is developing new technologies for medical devices, ranging from cardiovascular devices to wound care management. Implementing the recent advanced engineering solutions in developing, improving, and validating new medical devices.

Research Interests

My research interests are on Artificial Muscles, electroactive polymers, micro pumps and their biomedical applications. In addition, I am interested in the microcontrollers, and controlling system and applying these technologies in the medical field.
