Abstract or Summary

Mohammad Al-Rawi and Thomas Vuong from MIT will be talking about their research activities north of the Bombay Hills. Dr. Mohammad AL-Rawi is an expert in Computational Fluid dynamics Modelling (CFD), the CFD theories are used to develop non-invasive tool of detecting cardiovascular diseases, based on animal models performing in vitro and in vivo experiments. Dr. AL-Rawi is a Senior Lecturer/ Programme Manager, School of Professional Engineering at the Manukau Institute of Technology, Auckland, new Zealand. His academic experience is primarily in the field of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering research and teaching Applied Computational Modelling, Medical Equipment, Fluid Mechanics and Strength of Materials. Dr Thomas Vuong joined Manukau Institute of Technology in July 2015. He holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from HoChiMinh University of Transports, a Master of Mechanical Engineering and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Auckland University of Technology. Prior to moving to New Zealand and returning to his academic life, Thomas was a locomotive engineer in Vietnam. In New Zealand, he worked as Product Design Engineer at Fisher & Paykel Appliances Ltd. He was responsible for designing and improving the dynamic response of the balancing system in washing machines. At present, his research focus is on developing a numerical CPAP model for predicting dynamic response under normal and abnormal breathing cycles in collaborating with Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Ltd.
