Expertise: My work focuses mainly on multiphase flow in micro-scale. This includes capillary jets, microdroplets and also electrohydrodynamics. The main objective of my research is to understand the physics in such small scale and then use this knowledge to develop different technologies . I use experimental tools such as high speed imaging, theoretical approaches such as dimensionless analysis and development of scaling laws, and numerical methods to tackle challenges that arise from industry in areas such as 2D printing, additive manufacturing and micro-encapsulation. Keywords: Electrospray, Direct Printing, Microfluidics, Drops & Bubbles, Microencapsulation, Capillary jet.

Brief Biography

Ahmed Ismail received the Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Helwan at Cairo in 2009. He then moved to Spain for postgraduate studies after receiving the Formation of Personal Investigator Scholarship (FPI) from the Spanish Ministry of Education. He received his MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering in 2014 and PhD in Fluid Mechanics in 2016 from the University of Seville. Following a postdoctoral year in the Department of Aerospace and Fluid Mechanics at the University of Seville, in 2017 he joined Queen Mary University of London as PDRA at the School of Engineering and Material Science, where he focused on electro-jetting and additive manufacturing. In 2019 he took up a position as Academic Fellow in Aerospace/Mechanical Engineering and Lecturer of Fluid Dynamics at QMUL. Ahmed is leading a research group to study various phenomena in micro fluids flow and electro-hydrodynamics with the aim of underpinning the physics of these phenomena and exploit it in applications such as 2D/3D printing and drug delivery among others.
