“Dr. Gulraiz Ahmed joined the department of Mechanical Engineering as an Assistant Professor in May 2014. He completed his Bachelor’s degree in 2007 from Institute of Space Technology (IST). He obtained a Master’s degree in Aerodynamics and Computation from University of Southampton, United Kingdom. He joined IST as a lecturer after masters. During his stay at IST, he taught undergraduate students and supervised various student projects. He was among the few to receive the Environmental Science and Research PhD scholarship to investigate the fluid mechanics of bloodstain formation. During his PhD at University of Canterbury, New Zealand, he worked on modeling the effects of the fluid rheology and surface texture on the footprint of passive droplets. In 2015, he was awarded a two years Marie Curie Experienced Researcher position at Loughborough University, United Kingdom to work on a European Union funded Initial Training Network project titled “CoWet”. After successfully completing his Research Associate position he re-joined Mechanical Engineering Department in November 2017.  He has a vast Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) experience and has dealt with hydrodynamics as well as aerodynamics problems. His areas of interest include Fluid Mechanics, Numerical Methods, CFD, Aerodynamics and Computational Methods. Currently he is teaching as well as supervising projects of students at UCP.”
