Academic Biography

Dr Hamad studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq where he obtained a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and MSc in Thermal Engineering. He worked for 10 years as Assistant Lecturer/Lecturer at Basrah University before he started his PhD study at Bradford University on multiphase flow in vertical pipe. He also obtained a PGCE in Further Education from Huddersfield University and PGCE for maths teaching from Sheffield Hallam University.

Dr Hamad was employed as Research Engineer at Aberdeen University for two years on the development of multiphase flow meter which extended for two years as a Teaching Fellow at the school of Engineering. Dr Hamad then joined Teesside University in 2011 as a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer at the School of Science & Engineering.
