Dr. Mouhammad El Hassan is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the College of Engineering at Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University.
Previously, he was Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Beirut Arab University, Senior Researcher at the University of Alberta and Adjunct Professor at the University of Calgary. He was also Lead Researcher and CTO in Canadian companies.
He received his Ph.D., B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from University Polytechnique Hauts-de-France, in 2008 and 2004, his M.S. in Biomechanics from University of Paris in 2004 and his MBA from the Administration and Management Institute of Valenciennes in 2007.
Dr. El Hassan's current fields of research include experimental and numerical investigation of turbulent flows (subsonic and supersonic Jets, cavity flows, etc.), active and passive flow controls, optimization of supersonic ejectors (heat pumps and distillation plants), and cardio-vascular flows. He also investigate the heat transfer and Aeroacoustics of several industrial applications.
Dr. El Hassan has published numerous scientific papers in top-ranked scientific journal and international conferences. He independently developed grant proposals for a variety of funding sources, including government and private sectors. He is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA, Canada) and the National Technology Research Center, Aeronautics and Space division (France). Dr. El Hassan is also a reviewer of many top-ranked international journals, such as Physics of Fluids and the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer.
