Dr. Abdalellah Mohmmed is a senior lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering and Energy Department at De Montfort University (Dubai Campus). Dr. Mohmmed was an assistant professor in the school of Engineering, Mechanical Engineering at Emirates Aviation University, UAE. In 2016, Abdalellah received his Ph. D. in Mechanical Engineering from University Technology PETRONAS, Malaysia. His main research interest is Fluid-Structure Interaction with an immense emphasis on multiphase flow interaction, computational solid mechanics, computational fluid mechanics, and pipeline engineering. Abdalellah secured an Undergraduate Research Grant from The Research Council (TRC) Oman in 2019 for a project entitled” Numerical Investigations on the Mechanical Fatigue Behaviour of AZ31 Magnesium Alloy” when he was working as a senior lecturer in Middle East College, Oman. He participated in several international conferences and published over 20 peer-reviewed conference and journal papers.
