Ph.D. student



I grew up in Najran city, Saudi Arabia. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University in 2016. Following that, I pursued graduate studies at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and successfully earned a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering in May 2018. Currently, I am actively engaged in my Ph.D. candidacy under the esteemed guidance of Professor Sigurdur Thoroddsen.

As part of my professional journey, I am employed at The Center of Excellence for Aeronautics and Astronautics (CEAA), situated at the renowned King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST). Additionally, I collaborate closely with Stanford University in a concerted effort to produce research outcomes and cutting-edge technological advancements that have a global impact.

My research primarily centers around the complex field of turbulent flow. I specialize in employing sophisticated Flow Visualization Techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), laser-induced fluorescence (LIF), Lagrangian particle tracking velocity (LPTV), and ultra-high-speed video imaging processing.

Research Interests

Turbulent flow, Tomographic PIV, LIF  and PTV measurement, Qualitative flow visualization,  Mechanics design.
